Polymer and Composites Technology


The overall objective is to create and transfer the knowledge on composite-intensive primary structures that meet weight, cost and production rate requirements. The activity is organized around three research domains:

  1. Advanced Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM):

    • Thermoplastic RTM (TP-RTM)
    • Compression RTM (CRTM)
    • Fibre Metal Laminate RTM (FML-RTM)
  1. Ultraviolet curing technology applied to:

    • Pultrusion
    • Automatic Tape Laying (ATL)
    • Filament Winding
  1. Deformation and fracture of polymer and composites:

    • Stamp forming
    • Impact/damage simulation
    • Morphing

In PKT emphasis is placed on application-oriented research and the development of products to pilot production level. Automotive (PSA-Citröen, CIDIA), Railway (CAF), Civil Engineering (Acciona Infraestructuras, ULMA Construcción), Tooling Machine (Danobat, Trimek) and Sport (Orbea) are some of the most representative industrial partners.

PKT has state-of-the-art technology and equipment to meet the needs of application oriented research and development.

Training of young researchers (undergraduates and doctorates) and professionals form the industry is also a nuclear activity of the research group.
