Training in VITRImers: high performance MAterials and Trainees for cutting-edge industrial applications

Project description

New material to replace plastics in Europe

Plastics such as thermoplastics are made up of polymer chains that allow them to be recyclable but they are poor at handling heat and solvents. On the other hand, crosslinked thermosets resist heat and solvents but are non-recyclable. The EU-funded VITRIMAT project aims to make use of vitrimers, a new class of materials that have the best features of thermoplastics and crosslinked thermosets. The project aims to convert cutting-edge European academic research on vitrimers into industrial developments for daily life products. VITRIMAT will combine the expertise of academic and industrial partners in one national technical centre.
