A transverse axis, at the heart of the activity of the materials cluster that we are
Materials are everywhere and are at the origin of all products and everyday objects. They are evolving and adapting to the changes in our society and its regulatory constraints, particularly those related to the end-of-life of products.
Polymeris has made this a strategic focus in its roadmap because tomorrow's materials must be recyclable, with a favorable carbon footprint, increasingly biosourced or even biodegradable in different environments, and high-performance with composites expected for mobility.
What are the priorities for phase V?
On this axis, Polymeris proposes to its members projects emergence days around new materials and their applications and industrial solutions days with presentations of innovative solutions providers.
The performance of new recycled materials is also the key to their adoption by industry. Whether they are rubbers, polymers, or composites, we need to know them inside out as to their origin, durability and properties, which must be integrated into simulation codes, and to develop test methods specific to these new standards.
Finally, the combination of materials to make the best use of the performance of each will be done with the notion of demonstrability or separation at the end of life for reuse, recycling or other.
One of the cluster's key actions
Focus on the MATEX project
Polymeris is a partner in the MATEX ARD (Ambition for Multi-Material Research and Development in Extreme Conditions)
Project sponsor: CNRS Centre-Val de Loire Region
Structuring regional research to highlight it on an international scale through collaborative projects with industry.
- The processes of elaboration of multi materials;
- Materials under extreme conditions;
- Analysis of durability, aging and recyclability.
Our Projects in Europe on advanced materials
You want Polymeris to accompany you (set-up, labeling, opportunity analysis...)? Polymeris is strongly involved in European projects on the themes of digital transition.
- Project with cascade funding to support innovation in advanced materials related to lightweighting.
- Technological support for SMEs in the lightweighting sector for the automotive and aeronautical markets
- Designing epoxy resins by partially replacing BPA with a lignin-based biomass.
- Biocomposites in smart plastic processing to pave the way for large-scale adoption of sustainable bioproducts.
