Details

Tittle:
French research and development center of plastics and composite materials seeks research cooperation agreements.
Summary:
A French R-Y-D centre specialised in plastics and composite materials offers its 30 years old expertise to industry and research. The R-Y-D centre is offering a wide range of services in terms of applied or fundamental research in processes and materials in plastics, polymers and composites. The center is interested in research cooperation agreements, technical cooperation agreements and license agreements.
Description:
A French research institute specialized in plastics and composite materials offers its expertise, design assistance and consulting to industry and research. 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 can offer the following services to industry:
· 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 center 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 proposes services to industrials coming mainly from 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 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.
Stage of Development:
Under development/lab tested
IPs:

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The R-Y-D centre would like to collaborate with industrials (mainly coming from the automotive, aeronautics, food packaging and construction materials sectors) wanting to develop projects and products including new polymers materials such as composite or thermoplastics materials.

They are also interested in collaborating with universities or labs looking for skills in polymers characterization, formulation or processing.

The centre is interested in research cooperation agreements and technical cooperation agreements. They are also open to collaboration under EU projects.
