Composites Materials



Creation of a cyber-physical device that monitors and optimizes the plastic injection process. The DASIT project develops a cyber-physical prototype that allows real-time and remote monitoring of the injection process, obtaining direct data from sensors embedded in the mould and indirect data through a device connected to the mould. The device [...]



Development of new biodegradable plastic formulations for the biomedical sector. The PHASAL project develops different bioplastic formulations that introduce PHB-HV with different loads of hydroxyvalerate (-HV) from the revaluation of organic waste. The objective is that these formulations, applicable to the health field, present advanced biodegradability and biocompatibility properties to minimize [...]



Pioneering sustainable solutions based on graphene to address environmental challenges. The GIANCE project establishes a holistic, integrative and industry-driven platform with a clear focus on the improvement of sustainable materials and their real-world applications. In this sense, GIANCE designs, develops and scales the next generation of multifunctional composites, coatings, foams and [...]



Design, manufacture and experimental validation of a tank to store hydrogen at high pressure. The HIDROGENIA project develops and validates to TRL 5 a type IV tank to safely store hydrogen at high pressure (700 bars). These types of tanks are already manufactured today, but they present permeability problems because the materials used [...]



Improvement of shaping systems for the deposition of semi-molten materials, applicable mainly to plastic, metallic or mixed materials (plastic, metallic, ceramic and inorganic). The FUSE3D project develops new technologies for the deposition of semi-molten material with the aim to improve the adhesion between layers of material and increasing its strength, combining [...]



New manufacturing process that allows to use high-performance thermoplastic matrix composite materials reinforced with carbon fibre in the regional aircraft construction. The utilization of these thermoplastic matrix composite materials in the construction of regional aircrafts is limited due to the complexity of forming of these materials and the high costs that [...]



Development of regional aircraft thermoplastic composite windows frames using advanced and innovative industrial processes and Out of Autoclave composite manufacturing (OOA – alternative to autoclave process commonly applied for the aeronautic industry for producing high performance composite materials) with the aim of reducing the weight of the window frames and their [...]



New manufacturing process for carbon fibre fuselage frames to be able to apply these materials in the construction of regional aircrafts. The new manufacturing process developed by COFRARE 2020 marks a new milestone for the aeronautical European industry and for the construction of lighter and more sustainable planes, through the integration [...]



Development of new models and methods to improve the design capabilities of the hybrid boxes, such as the wings of the airplanes, formed by metallic panels and composite materials components. INNOHYBOX project, coordinated by Eurecat, investigates the thermo-mechanical behaviour of hybrid boxes with the purpose to optimize them by developing a [...]



Innovative and affordable solutions for advanced car body shells manufacturing and lightweight material strategies for railways, innovative doors and train modularity. The CARBODIN project, coordinated by Eurecat, has the objective to contribute to the next generation of passenger trains that will be lighter and more energy and cost efficient than the current [...]
