CIATEC focuses on the development of research projects in the area of polymers, nanocomposites, flame retardant materials, and biomaterials, efforts follow from basic research to their application in the industry.
LABORATORY OF MATERIALS CHARACTERIZATION
Contains instruments and test equipment to perform calorimetry (DSC), rheology, dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and infrared (FT-IR) testing on materials; These are used to identify, characterize, and understand the physical-chemical properties of materials.
FOCUS OF THE LABORATORY
CIATEC develops materials research projects for application in the automotive and aeronautical industry.
