Composite Materials

INNOVENT works on the development of modern high-performance composite systems. This includes bonding between substrates by means of adhesive technology, hybrid injection molding as well as hot press techniques, and the formulation of functionalized composite materials.

This aspect of adhesion regularly represents a major point in the development of composite systems, especially under thermal and media load.

For improving the adhesion on difficult substrates, modern methods such as treatment with laser and UVC lights, and various silicatization techniques are available. The formulation of chemically reactive adhesive agents and primer systems is also an essential part of our work.

 

 

The development of composite materials focuses on highly filled functional formulations. These include: adhesives with high thermal conductivity or adjusted coefficient of thermal expansion, and coating materials with an active protection against biological influenced corrosion by sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB).
