The High Performance Multifunctional 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.
technologies are grouped together in 3 competence centeRs:
It creates knowledge and end-to-end expertise from the research laboratory to the end-users via material suppliers. It delivers benchmarks and proofs of concept, forming part of industry 4.0 with solutions that are automated and respect the environment. Finally, it supports digital continuity processes by creating virtual products and virtual testing while factoring in the constraints of manufacturing processes.
Supported by its multi-disciplinary teams – industrial, academic and IRT staff – and its disruptive technology platforms, the technologies are broken down into four key competences: smart composites and processes, high-performance metallic materials and processes, multi-functional coatings/paintings, and innovative surface treatments and assemblies.
