Materials and Characterizations

Materials and Characterizations Area deals with materials and products development and is able to dialogue with all actors of production chain: developers of polymeric and composite materials in thermosetting or thermoplastic matrix, semi-finished products and components manufacturers, end users.


  • Samples and components production in polymer and thermoplastic/thermosetting composite
  • Characterization of polymeric composite and stone materials
  • Non Destructive Testing
  • Small/full scale components testing
  • Support to composite materials producers for time-to-market shortening
  • Identification and design of optimal composite or polymeric material for specific applications
  • REACH and CLP services for companies

All the ctivities are supported, where necessary, by experimental testing process (in lab scale and pilot scale), control and monitoring activities, SHM, materials, components and processes simulations using CAE tools.
