R&D Projects

AIMPLAS Projects

Development of a textile sensor to detect deformations in structures based on polymeric nanofibers functionalized with carbon nanotubes (CNTs), in the shape of nanonet (“nonwoven fabric” – bidimensional) and filament yarn (unidimensional) for its integration in flexible and rigid substrates.
Development of a product whose material is a PVC compound with organic fillers adding a surface appearance with rough finish and keeping the current product performances to the final product.
Improve and adapt the characteristics of biodegradable and compostable materials, with the aim of providing a sustainable alternative for food packaging, framed within the axis of sustainability.
Study and development of an innovative smart fabric for car buttons with less diversity in materials used, decrease in the number of parts and simplification of the manufacturing and assembling process, thus improving also the recycling capacity at the end of life of vehicles.
