Resumen:
Un centro de I+D francés especializado en plásticos y materiales compuestos ofrece conocimientos técnicos para desarrollar nuevos proyectos y materiales poliméricos. Una de sus prioridades es investigar la relación entre el desarrollo de materiales y sus propiedades finales, sustituyendo material virgen por material reciclado procedente de vehículos al final de su vida útil (ELV). Se buscan industrias en los sectores de automoción, aeronáutica, envases alimentarios y materiales para la construcción con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica y en materia de investigación, así como institutos de investigación. El centro también está interesado en participar en proyectos del programa H2020 u otros proyectos europeos.

Tittle:
Plastics and composite materials R-Y-D centre offers technical skills for the development of new polymer materials and projects.
Summary:
A French R-Y-D centre specialised in plastics and composite materials offers technical competencies for the development of new polymer materials and projects. They are looking for collaboration with industrials mainly coming from the automotive, aeronautics, food packaging and construction materials sectors. The centre is interested in research cooperation agreements and technical cooperation agreements. Collaboration with research institutes is also considered.
Description:
A French research institute specialised in plastics and composite materials offers its expertise, design assistance and consulting to industry and research willing to develop new polymer materials and projects. The French research and development centre´s research focuses on four main technical sectors.

First, research focuses on surface and interface phenomena through a patented method of metalizing a non-conductive plastic substrate.
Expertise also includes the development of polymer mixtures and formulation allowing performance and lightweight of thermoplastic materials for transport. The centre is also specialised in materials for energy efficiency in transports.

Other priority of the centre is research on the relationship between the materials development and final properties; it focuses on the substitution of Virgin material by recycled material from End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV).

The R-Y-D centre finally develops bio-sourced and recycled materials focusing on recycling of polymers, on development of multi-layer bio-sourced films or bio-sourced films using blends, on processing of PLA (polylactic acid) -improvement of thermo-mechanical properties and on study of aging of PLA and surface treatment of PLA.

In practice, the institute´s skills include:
· Compounding,
· Formulation of thermoplastics
· Optimization of thermoplastic material processing, improvement of material physical properties;
· Development of formulations, hybrid materials (hollow glass microspheres, metal);
· Formulation and processing of bio-sourced materials;
· Design and rapid prototyping;
· Chemical Analyses;
· Component analyses;
· Physical and chemical analyses;
· Behaviour studies;
· Mechanical and rheological analyses.

The R-Y-D centre is equipped with a BUSS mixer, a twin-screw extruder fitted with two side feeders, liquid injection systems, a twin-screw extruder of laboratory (450°c maxi), haake mixer,
injection presses, extrusion lines, an extrusion blow-moulding machine, a blown film machine, an extrusion sheet line and thermoforming machines.

This laboratory works in close collaboration with the technology transfer center; this is the reason why all the research topics are directly linked to industrials´ needs.

The R-Y-D centre would like to collaborate with industrials coming mainly from the automotive, transport and aeronautics sectors but also from food packaging and construction materials sectors and needing to integrate R-Y-D into their products and projects development processes. They are interested in research cooperation agreements and technical cooperation agreements with industry but also with research institutes. They are also open to collaborate in the frame of EU projects such as Horizon 2020 projects.
Advantages and Innovations:
The R-Y-D centre´s key strength lies in its capacity to bridge the gap between formulating polymer materials and their final processing and end-product. The innovation is based on the fcat that every polymer formulation is designed thinking of the final product in which it will result. It is not the prodcut which adapts to the formulation but the formulation which adapts ti the product.
Stage of Development:
Under development/lab tested
IPs:
Secret Know-how
