Projectbeschrijving


The objective for this project is to tailor glass transition temperature and ductility in bio-based adhesives, aiming to develop light weight, high impact composites that will result in a reduction of its carbon foot print.​

Background

Development of bio-based adhesives and fillers with functionalities for composites.

Science and technology challenges

  • Development of a generic approach for synthesis and development of the structure property relationships in adhesives.
  • Development of adhesives for the existing high performance materials, such are aramids, carbon and polyethylene fibers.
  • Development of light weight and high impact composites for transportation and sports gear.
  • Adhesive will also be tested with bio-based carbon fibres from Lignin
