The Sustainable Polymeric & Composite Materials (SUSMAT) research unit aims at the production of new environmentally friendly functional polymers and composites, studying the physico-chemical and thermo-mechanical behavior of the related materials by a combined approach of instrumented experimental testing and adequate numerical modelling.
SUSMAT research unit intensively participates in the National Composites Centre - Luxembourg (NCC-L).
The unit focuses on three main areas :
The activities include research and development concerning:
SUSMAT works in close collaboration with the polymer and composite industry and its suppliers, and with the support of the European Commission, the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, and the Luxembourg National Research Fund.
