We collaborate with companies of the automotive and transport sector to improve the properties of plastic materials of vehicles (better resistance to scratches on interior panels of motor vehicles, such as doors, dashboards or an increased electrical conductivity of plastic parts). Another important role play environmental aspects, we focus on the reduction of the vehicle´s weight and concentrate on biomaterials and the development of technologies for:
Development and improvement of polymeric materials:
Materials from renewable sources.
Nanocomposites and functionalisation of nanoparticles.
Materials with fire resistance and elimination of smoke.
Improvement of traditional material properties.
Improvement of transformation processes:
Dispersion and rheology of mixtures.
Processing of thermoplastic materials and continuous fibres.
Advanced composite curing systems.
Development of new products:
Multifunctional structures (Co-extrusion, co-injection, lamination, coatings).
Products based on recycled materials and on biocomposites
