Research & Development

Research and development are our excellence marks. Designing new materials as well as continuous development of existing ones, has always been considered extremely important to ensure a result that satisfies the various needs of clients, guarantying state-of-the-art technology and environmental conservation.

In order to achieve this, we have especially set up two different laboratories.

The chemical-physical laboratory is intended to determine the chemical-physical, mechanical and rheological properties of compounds and of items made with them. To perform those tests, our researchers are equipped with:

  • FT-IR infra-red spectrometer paired with electronic microscope
  • AAS atomic absorption spectrometer
  • UV-VIS spectrometer
  • Gas-chromatographer
  • HDT-Vicat
  • DSC
  • Plastograph
  • Melt Flow Index
  • Extrusimeter
  • Dynamometer
  • Eenon-test ATLAS CI4000

In the laboratory it is also possible to test fireproofness, electrical conductivity as well as compounds reaction at low temperatures.

The technological laboratory is intended for the creation of new formulas and colours and to test the behaviour of newly developed compounds during transformation. In order to do so, three extrusion lines and one injection press are available for the laboratory.

The final fine-tuning is carried out on a pilot line with the exact same structure as the industrial granulation lines.
