The High-Performance Multi-Functional Materials Domain meets the challenges of technological breakthroughs that require new materials and processes tailored to industrial requirements and that are more environmentally friendly, robust and certifiable.
The technologies are grouped together in 3 competence centeRs:
The Domain devises solutions at every point in the value chain to accelerate the introduction of new materials and processes from their development and characterization via simulation to pilot scale.
It creates knowledge and end-to-end expertise from the research laboratory to the manufacturer via material suppliers. It delivers technological benchmarks and proofs of concept, forming part of industry 4.0 with solutions that are automated and respect the environment. Finally, it supports digitalization by creating digital twins of products and tests while factoring in the constraints of manufacturing processes.
With its multi-disciplinary teams – industrial, academic and IRT staff – and its disruptive technology platforms, the domain formulates and transforms materials and introduces new functions. It develops processes with robust technologies that are eco-friendly. Furthermore, it uses simulation technologies, big data and artificial intelligence.
The technologies are broken down into four key themes: multi-functional composites, high-performance metallic materials, smart-paint-decoration coatings, and innovative surface treatments and assemblies.
