Expertise in processing techniques producing rigid products for micro-injection applications

Integration of Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Material in a thermoplastic polymer matrix to improve its mechanical, thermal and electrical properties.

Combination of limited CNT availability, high cost and extremely small size qualified CNT thermoplastic composites for demanding microinjection-moulding applications.

Main results available at CRIF and ready for immediate dissemination are:

- requires adapted equipment and methodology.

- methodology and specific equipment for the compounding, processing and characterisation of thermoplastic composites using a very small amount of material. Whole process leading to characterisation of composite requires less than 5 grammes CNT and 100 grammes polymer.

- identification of interesting rheological properties of CNT thermoplastic composites to reduce die swell and other behaviour of molten polymers

- Development of methodology and experience in specific characterisation techniques for mechanical and thermal characterisation of thermoplastic micro-parts (holographic interferometry techniques for micro-mechanical characterisation and thermal characterisation using Hot Disk technique).
