IK4-Cidetec states the new facilities will aid the company in the manufacture andprocessing of polymeric composites

The company explains the new facilities were designed with the objective of meeting the needs of its industrial customers. They are expected to attract new solutions in the field of polymeric composites, implementing the developments in synthesis and modification of polymers in semi-industrial prototypes that were already being conducted in the laboratory.

IK4-Cidetec claims this will enable research and development of new generations of composites and nanocomposites presenting improvements in areas such as processing times (fast curing systems), recyclability, repairability or reprocessability, mechanical strength, thermal and electrical conductivity and surface functionality.

IK4- Cidetec states that the competitive advantage sought is to cover the entire value chain of the product, starting from polymer synthesis all the way up to manufacturing and characterisation of the final component and / or the first series.

IK4- Cidetec believes the Gipuzkoan research centre will be able to make a comprehensive offer to the industry. The initial investment totalled over €1,500,000
