The main objective of the research part of the project is to develop a hybrid technology that enables the production of high-performance composite structures with a recyclable thermoplastic matrix. The proposed hybrid technology combines the advantages of three of the most promising processing techniques—thermoplastic resin transfer moulding (T-RTM) and/or injection moulding, and additive manufacturing, within the production of a single part.

Tasks of research:

  • Study of the interfacial bonding strength
  • Synthesis of covalent adaptable networks (CAN) using reactive extrusion and compounding
  • Study of improvement of interfacial bonding strength between different polymers
  • Use of CAN in hybrid technologies
  • Development of demonstrators
