Materials with advanced features
  • Anti-icing systems and other advanced coatings based on self-assembly systems.
  • Enhanced material properties: mechanical properties, electrical and thermal conductivity, antimicrobial properties.
  • Materials with electromagnetic shielding properties to prevent interference.
  • Integrating electronic components into plastic materials (Plastronics): flexible electronics and in-mould electronics.
  • Development of dissimilar material systems (polymer-metal or two different kinds of polymers).
Use of materials that are more sustainable, recyclable and have less environmental impact
  • Ecodesign to develop sustainable products, optimize materials and use recycled plastic.
  • Inclusion and compatibility of recycled plastic materials.
  • Replacement of metallic materials with polymer or composite materials in parts used in different sectors.
  • Development of high-performance bio-composites for applications inside aircraft.
  • Replacement of traditional materials with bio-plastics (headrests, trays, carpet…).
  • Environmental impact assessment (Carbon footprint, LCA).
Reduction of costs and manufacturing times
  • Study on how to automate composite manufacturing processes.
  • Development of fast-curing systems in composites: microwave, UV.
  • Cost reduction in the manufacture of polyurethane moulds through industrial testing.
  • Additive manufacturing and 3D printing – manufacture of short or customized production runs.
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions by using out-of-autoclave composite manufacturing processes.
Advice on improving properties
  • Advice on the causes of failure, breakage, and malfunctioning.
  • Control and characterization: identification and quantification of additives and fillers, ageing, climate tests, mechanical properties, fatigue, surface properties…
  • Enhanced properties by combining polymers, additivation and/or polymer modification and processing conditions.
  • Technical reports for arbitration and expert reports.
  • Training on materials, processes and plastic material characterization.
