The PYROS research initiative aims to develop sustainable, fire-resistant composites for use in the construction and public transport sectors.
During the project participants AITEX and AIMPLAS will examine the opportunity to develop composites using renewable raw materials, both in the polymer matrix and the reinforcing textile structure, as well as investigating the incorporation of flame-retardant additives and fireproof finishes typically used in the textile industry.
Scale-model demonstrators designed for use in the construction and public transport sectors will be produced using the sustainable composites developed.
The project objectives include:
Polyscope Polymers is this year’s winner of the JEC Innovation Award in the Automotive Application category.
Bastos Viegas uses Ixef PARA for its Zillion Black single-use surgical instruments as a cost-effective alternative to stainless steel.
At the JEC World 2019, Refitech Composite Components will showcase its new Refiflex range of carbon components for easy accessible lightweight construction for a range of applications.
