Obtaining active polymers designed for 3D printing in medical applications.
As in other sectors, the medical sector is increasingly in need of personalized treatment for patients, with more sustainable systems and materials with greater chemical complexity. 3D printing technology, recognized as one of the Essential Enabling Technologies (EET), enables this type of personalized treatment in a more accessible and effective way, especially if the manufacturing is carried out in the hospital itself, by specialized personnel in direct contact with the healthcare staff. The aim of this presentation is to show concepts to be taken into account in the development of new polymeric materials for use in medical applications that require 3D printing technology and, in particular, the new advances in the sector, regarding the development of new “shape-memory polymers” for 3D printing applications in the biomedical sector.

New materials for sustainable mobility
The future of materials in mobility is about sustainability. The quest for industry, transport and cities with zero emissions of polluting gases is forcing us to change many aspects of our daily lives, thereby improving our quality of life. Specifically, in the transport sector, polluting emissions can be reduced mainly in two ways: electro-mobility and the reduction of emissions during the vehicle manufacturing process. The promotion of the first, i.e. the electrification of transport, especially in the automotive sector, requires focusing efforts on all those aspects that prevent consumers from opting for an electric vehicle: price, number of charging points, charging time, etc. As for the second strategy, the correct selection of materials is mandatory, since they have a direct impact on the weight of the vehicle and, therefore, on the autonomy of the battery.

Competitive and sustainable thermoplastic composites for automotive applications
The first applications of composite materials in electric vehicles such as the BMW i3 have demonstrated their great lightweighting potential but, however, based on thermoset composites, they have presented limitations in terms of their recyclability, the generation of manufacturing waste and their associated costs to achieve a competitive solution. In this context, thermoplastic composites in certain processes have great potential to meet these requirements. Tecnalia has developed novel technologies such as T-RTM or taping and forming based on thermoplastic unidirectional tapes for customized stacking with zero scrap. Together with companies in the automotive value chain, Tecnalia is improving and validating these technologies to ensure their technical and economic feasibility in different applications such as the new generation of electric vehicles.

Development of large out-of-autoclave composite structures for the mobility sector by applying Industry 4.0 tools.
Composite materials are widely used in the development of components for various applications in the mobility sector. Composites play an important role in the manufacture of trains, aircraft, automobiles and ships, among others. The demand for parts for lightweight and durable structures in these sectors is growing day by day. Thanks to the latest developments in materials, it is possible to manufacture train bodies or aircraft fuselages in composite. However, it is necessary to work on out-of-autoclave manufacturing processes to obtain high quality parts with higher production rates and lower costs and thus achieve optimized lightweight structures with the lowest environmental impact. To achieve this, it is essential to analyze and study the structure from the design stage and to choose the most suitable materials and process, taking into account all functional and economic requirements.

Protecting composites with state-of-the-art antimicrobial coatings. "Sometimes it's what you don't see that counts."
After years of working on the development of paint systems with antimicrobial additives, Mankiewicz has developed, qualified and implemented on the market solutions that, without the need for special care or refresh coats,
maintain their effectiveness over time. Antimicrobial tests under the JIS Z 2801 standard, carried out by independent laboratories, show that the additives used lead to a reduction of the microorganisms present on the surface of more than 99.9%. The resulting product not only meets all the stringent FST requirements of OEMs including full customization by design OEM requirements including full customization by design, but includes antimicrobial properties to it. What’s more, it remains functional throughout the maintenance cycle, which means no re-application is required. Only the technology used in the ALEXIT product range offers this.

New composite recycling technologies to boost the circular economy in the industry
The European composites market was valued at more than €14 billion in 2018 and is expected to increase by 7.5% from 2019 to 2025 due to the growing demand for lightweight materials for the wind, transport, automotive and defense sectors. Adding this to their long half-life, it is now when the waste derived from these composites and the problematic of their treatment start to accumulate. For this reason it is urgent to promote the circular economy in the composites sector, in order to recycle and reuse these wastes that are currently deposited in landfills. The existing technologies for recycling composites (mechanical, chemical and physical recycling) will be analyzed, as well as those leading technologies that manage to reduce energy consumption while maximizing the mechanical properties of the recovered fibers.

The challenge of the zero-emission aircraft
At Airbus, we have the ambition to develop the world’s first zero-emission commercial aircraft by 2035. Hydrogen propulsion will help us to achieve this goal. The storage and distribution of hydrogen in cryogenic conditions (20 K) in continuous service for at least 25 years at minimum weight, adds great complexity and represents a technological leap. Composites are proving to be the best material alternative. AIRBUS in Spain, as a leader in composite aerostructures, will develop and characterize new materials together with the world’s leading manufacturers, validate design concepts and tank manufacturing processes, and integrate them into the aircraft with all the associated functionality and safety systems to guarantee and maintain current safety levels in the aeronautical industry.
