  4. 4. CompositesWrapping upBart Vangrimde the collective centre of the Belgian technological industry
  5. 5. Subject 1: Surface preparation and coating• Challenge: tedious surface preparation of fragile composite• Low pressure plasma looks promising to avoid manual surface preparation of camera cases for space applications • “we got enough information to go further” © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 6
  6. 6. Subject 2: Powder coating composites?• Solutions for powder coating are in reach, problem is the conductivity of CFRP.• How to increase the conductivity? • inclusion of nano-particles? • nano-particles commercially available for integration in resins?• Temperature of powder coating 150-200’C • should not be an issue• Outgassing when changing coating to be checked… © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 7
  7. 7. Subject 3: Composites in sun shields• What are the benefits of composite design in sun shields? • structural advantages in terms of strength/stiffness • function integration (transparency, integrated lights) • click-in instead of bolting/screwing Alu GFRP GFRP CFRP CFRP UD 0/90 UD 0/90 density rho 2,8 1,8 1,8 1,5 1,5 tension E1 70 42 21 130 65 E1/ρ 25 20 10 90 45 σ 240 1200 600 2000 1000 σ/ρ 90 700 350 1400 700 Price EUR 2 20 © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 8
  8. 8. Subject 4: Steel as composite reinforcement• Bekaert suggests using steel fibers for reinforced plastics.• Possibilities to explore: • electrical conductivity and electromagnetic properties • recycling • processing • impact resistance carbon steel fibers are much tougher steel than carbon fiber • examples for “high weight applications” are small wind turbine blades or golf shafts © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 9
  9. 9. Open challenges• Life cycle analysis (LCA) of composite structures• Opportunities for MICA• Production of (metal matrix) composite materials on large scale, in continuous processes © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 10
  10. 10. wallLessons learned blind box with too little rigidity window frame• Challenging challenges challenged us!• No no-gos for composites window• Ways to explore identified check out www.slc-lab.be carbon steel steel fibers are much tougher than carbon fiber © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 11
  11. 11. SmartMaterialsWrapping upHeidi Van den Rul the collective centre of the Belgian technological industry
  12. 12. Major challenges• Does this technology works in my application/products? More knowledge about functions • Halochromic effect • Tactile properties • Dilatation depending on temperature • Smart functions for traceabilty of food: packaging RFID• Integration in the process of the smart coating • application: vacuum – wet cost • E.g. problem with Antifingerprint coating processing • More than the function itself: stability, chemical resistance, processability, how to test e.g. antibacterial• Supporting innovation • How to help SME’s to start with nanotech • Governmental financial instruments are available © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 13
  13. 13. Fast evolving markets• Antibacterial coatings are hot! • Applicabilty still under questions• RFID tags• Color based smart materials • Thermochromic • Photochromic • Halochromic • mechanochromic © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 14
  14. 14. Top 3 lessons learned• Offering of (theoretically) interesting functionality/properties is already huge! • Food packaging• More insights/in depth knowledge required for applications of new & advanced materials • Smart • Multifunctional• Processing © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 15
  15. 15. Sustainable MaterialsWrapping upStefan Milis the collective centre of the Belgian technological industry
  16. 16. Lesson 1:Success factors needed!Some success factors for the valorisation of more sustainable materials solutions• A win-win is created • More functionality • Lower or equal cost • More energy efficiency on the life-time • …• Clear incentives to innovate towards cleantech • Identify market opportunity over the value chains • The hunting for hunting grounds is a very difficult challenge © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 17
  17. 17. Lesson 2:Look beyond your Business Model• From selling products to selling functions• Driver for more sustainable products over the lifetime • Energy, material, repair, reuse, recycling, …. • Ecodesign!• Different concepts exist • Leasing • Take back• No one size fits all solution depending on: • B2B, B2C • Product Lifetime • Material © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 18
  18. 18. Lesson 3: Sustainable material selection, a puzzle?• Some tools on sustainability (planet) exist • Ecolizer • Solidworks add-in • LCA • …• Facilitates evaluation of alternatives, gives no new solutions• No integrated solution towards product and process• Real challenge is to close the gap between identification of sustainable alternatives and the final application at an acceptable cost © Sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be | 26/06/2011 19
