GRINHELEC: Developing and characterizing a greener insulation for high-voltage cables

In a context where European regulations will eventually require a massive restriction of the use of fluorinated polymers, GRINHELEC (GReen INsulation for High power ELECtrical harnesses) project intends to make possible the use of a bio-sourced insulation in effort to supplant the fluorinated insulators of the cables dedicated for electric propulsion. This project is part[…]

FREEzING 2: project dedicated to the development of durable icephobic surfaces for aeronautics

FREEzING 2, encouraged by the promising results obtained from FREEzING (2019-2023), starts at the beginning of March 2024. The aim of the project is to continue the development of durable icephobic surfaces using various surface treatment processes for aeronautical applications, and to assess their performances in a representative environment close to flight test. Project background[…]
