Construction is among the industries that consume the most plastic materials. Although plastics are not always visible in buildings, they are used in a wide range of interior and exterior applications. They can be found in insulation, wiring, piping, profiles, window frames and flooring, among other places. Plastics are also used in innovative solutions aimed at sustainable urban development and resource efficiency.
The standards concerning plastic pipes are determined by the material used to manufacture such pipe (polyethylene, polypropylene or PVC) and by the function that is […]
Fibre-reinforced composites are materials of great interest for very demanding sectors, such as the construction and the automotive industries, thanks to their low weight and […]
The European BASAJAUN project will optimize the use of forest products to boost the economy in rural areas and obtain new materials and construction systems based on the circular economy of wood.
The current trend of developing environmentally friendly products leads researchers to look for alternative materials in a variety of applications. Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is becoming
The project is developing coatings to be applied in floors, furniture, paint, composites and ceramics to purify the indoor environment of buildings and photodegrade substances such as formaldehyde by means of photodegradation.
The new highly temperature-conductive plastic components developed within the GEOCOND project will improve the efficiency of geothermal facilities. The new system will make possible to reduce drilling depth by up to 20 %, thereby saving installation costs up to 25 %.
AIMPLAS carries out the tests required for the CE marking of plastic tanks and sewage treatment plants, since it is notified by the Ministry of Industry as a Notified Body no 1842.
