HIGH-PERFORMANCE
marche project at SPECIFIC POLYMERS

Dec. 2019 – Dec. 2022

In the MARCHE project, highly electrically conductive coatings are elaborated to substitute metallic meshes used as lightning strike protection in aircraft. Indeed, these installations drastically penalize the reduction of weight earned with the replacement of titanium pieces by composites. A thin ultra-conductive (…)

focea project at SPECIFIC POLYMERS

Jan. 2020 – Jan. 2022

The FOCEA project aims to replace structural components made from titanium and located in the hot zones of aircraft with composites. The objective is to answer the major problem of weight reduction in order to minimize environmental impact. While epoxy-carbon fibre composites are, henceforth, essential in (…)

ENERGY
hidden project at SPECIFIC POLYMERS

Sep. 2020 – Aug. 2023

Lithium-ion batteries (LiBs) currently dominate the battery field. They have proved to be suitable e.g. for electric vehicles, which are urgently needed to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions and pollution worldwide. In Europe, 27% of carbon emission comes from transport, with cars representing 44% of that. This makes transport (…)

ENVIRONMENT
european current research projects bamco

Jan. 2018 – Sep. 2021

For a number of years, several industries have been seeking innovative solutions in order to limit their environmental impact. The European REACH regulation, which governs the use of chemical substances to strengthen the protection of human health and the environment, is a guideline for this area. This regulation contributes to (…)

bizente project at SPECIFIC POLYMERS

May 2020 – Apr. 2024

Plastic end-of-life management is one of the major challenges in the preservation of our ecosystems. The use of thermoset composites is projected to increase by 40% by 2020. To find an answer to that issue, the BIZENTE project was launched in May 2020. This project supported by the BBI aims to develop innovative (…)

european current research projects pheophotodyn

Nov. 2019 – Oct. 2022

SPECIFIC POLYMERS is involved in the PheoPhotoDyn Project which is co-financed by the EU and the Occitanie Region. The project involves two University laboratories from the Occitanie Region, the ICGM-IAM laboratory from Montpellier and the IMRCP team from Toulouse. The PheoPhotoDyn project focuses on an ‘innovative non-drug therapy’ (…)

european current research projects repair

Sep. 2020 – Aug. 2024

Heart failure (HF) and cerebral stroke associated with atrial fibrillation (AF) are some of the most dreadful and frequently occurring diseases in highly developed countries. HF (>20 million cases worldwide) and AF (>70 million cases worldwide) are both associated with impairment of cardiac mechanical function. In order to assist ventricular (…)

Mar. 2021 – Oct. 2024

Stroke is a leading cause of death worldwide for which clinicians lack therapeutic strategies. Oxidative stress is a well-known contributor to ischemic stroke damage. Besides neuronal loss, oxidative stress is also implicated in vessel damage, inducing cerebral haemorrhage, a major stroke complication. The current anti-oxidant (…)
