Síntesis de polímeros
Synthesis of new polymers, additives, particles and capsules
  • Specialized synthesis of polymers and additives using reactors and extruders for reactive extrusion (REX).
  • Custom polymers, scaled from 0.1 to 10 kg, (500 kg in REX).
  • Repolymerization after chemical recycling.
  • Process optimization, including purification processes.
  • Synthesis and functionalization of nano- and microparticles, including capsules for controlled release of active substances.

 

Formulación de materiales plásticos
Compounding: formulation of new materials
  • Development of materials with advanced properties (thermal and electrical conductors, flame-retardant, active, pest and insect repellents, anti-microbial…).
  • Tailor-made compounds. Small batch production.
  • Extensive experience in biopolymer compounding.
  • Formulation optimization and adjustment.
  • Ensuring plastic material compatibility.
  • Polymer grafting.
  • Inclusion of new additives and fillers in plastics, including bioadditives and bioplastics.
  • Study of fibre and filler dispersion.
  • Simulation of the extrusion process in a double-screw co-rotating extruder: optimization of the production and configuration of the screw. Upscaling from pilot plant to industrial extruder.
Validación de producto
Product manufacture and validation
  • Manufacture of prototypes, demonstrators and pre-series in pilot plants (film extrusion, lamination, profiles, thermoforming, injection, blowing, lamination, printing, 3D printing…).
  • Final product characterization (mechanical, physical, chemical, thermal, optical properties, climate testing, etc.).
  • Compliance with product regulations and legislation.
Composites
Composites: formulation of new materials
  • Selection of reinforcements, resins, fillers and additives for different applications, including advice on formulation, processing tests and validation of the final product. Biomaterials.
  • Mould design, process optimization and obtaining parts that conform to specifications in pultrusion and resin-transfer processes (RTM, RTM-Light and infusion).
  • Obtaining prototypes from SMC and Prepregs, material selection to comply with specifications.
  • Development of solid surface formulations to enhance the properties of products with high levels of inorganic fillers.
  • Inclusion of nanomaterials in formulations and obtaining prototypes. Property characterization.
