Materials and Characterizations

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


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

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