AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Centre, is a technology centre that offers global solutions for the entire value chain in R&D&I and technological services in the plastics sector, specifically in developing new materials. One of its lines of work is studying materials with unique properties and characteristics focused on additive manufacturing, from material synthesis, through compounding, to filament extrusion or pelletizing. AIMPLAS will be present at FORMNEXT, showcasing its latest material advancements at Hall 12.0 Stand B119.

Sustainable materials

AIMPLAS develops advanced materials through the revaluation of different organic wastes, such as the one developed in the framework of the MAGAYA project, materials that contribute to the circular economy and whose final focus is additive manufacturing, thus promoting this type of manufacturing towards the use of recycled and recyclable materials.

Materials for Health

Another sector with a clear potential in the development of materials is the health sector. AIMPLAS has worked in projects where it has been possible to successfully replicate intrinsic characteristics of this sector, such as the REALISTIC project where different material hardnesses have been obtained for the reproduction and study of human organs. Or the DEGLUMED project, with its development of drugs/nutraceuticals based on films processed by additive manufacturing for easy swallowing.

Functional and smart materials

Finally, AIMPLAS is also developing new flexible smart materials, with electrical or magnetic conductivity properties, for integration in soft robotics and electronic sensors. An example of this work can be seen in its products such as FILI 1 and 2, flexible high conductivity filaments that allow the development of final electrical products or, to continue with booming lines of research such as 3D printed flexible electronics. Reducing the presence of potentially polluting substances in recycling plants and achieving greater efficiency in the extraction and separation of components from electronic devices, thus revaluing the raw materials they contain.
