Our solutions for the construction sector

Use of materials that are more sustainable, recyclable and have less environmental impact

  • Ecodesign to develop products that are easy to recycle, and product recyclability studies.
  • Inclusion and compatibility of recycled plastic materials, including plastic waste (agglomerate, sheets, profiles).
  • Environmental impact assessment (Carbon footprint, LCA).
  • Development of biocomposites and plastic materials from renewable sources.
  • Wood-plastic composites and natural fibre composites.
  • New bio-based insulation materials.
  • Ecolabel for paints and varnishes.

Search for materials with advanced features

  • Development of materials and foams with thermal and acoustic insulation properties.
  • Flame-retardant plastics.
  • Development of smart plastics: changes in appearance (colour and shape), sensory (pressure, temperature).
  • Development of functional surface finishes: anti-scratching, anti-vandalism, ultra-hydrophobic surfaces, anti-fouling…).

Product analysis, finding solutions to faults and defects, compliance with product regulations and legislation

  • Advice on compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements (contact with water for human consumption, CTE, RITE, REACH, oil installation regulations).
  • Quality control analyses and tests for plastic products (waterproofing sheets, pipes, profiles, WPC, sanitaryware, solid surface, swimming pools, artificial grass, etc.)
  • CE marking of construction products such as bathroom items, fat and hydrocarbon separators and waterproofing.

Advice on improving properties

  • Control and characterization of plastics in the construction industry: mechanical and thermal properties, ageing…
  • Advice on the causes of failure, breakage, colour changes, degradation, installation issues, etc.
  • Enhanced properties by combining polymers, additivation and/or polymer modification.
  • Technical reports for arbitration and expert reports.
  • Training on materials, processes and plastic material characterization.
