Materiales plásticos sostenibles en construcción
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).
  • Life Cycle Assessment (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.
Búsqueda materiales construcción
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…).
Análisis producto
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.).
    • Non-plastic PVC profiles for windows and doors according to rule RP 01.17. This rule is based on European product standard UNE-EN 12608-1 and requires heat reversion tests in accordance with standard UNE-EN 479, burning behaviour in accordance with UNE-EN 478 and resistance to impact by falling mass in accordance with UNE-EN 477.
    • Plastic and rubber sheets for roof waterproofing according to rule RP 01.61. This rule covers sheets for both outdoor and indoor use (and therefore reinforced or non-reinforced). The tests to be carried out depend on the nature of the sheet and may include tensile tests, tests to check flexibility at low temperatures and tests to check dimensional stability.
