LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS BASED ON HIGH-TEMPERATURE FOAMED PLASTICS

LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS BASED ON HIGH-TEMPERATURE FOAMED PLASTICS

09/06/2017
Lightweight plastics are increasingly used in automotive, aerospace and construction sectors, because the use of low density materials allows to reduce the structural weight of products, reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint. REPOL has recently been working in several projects to develop lightweight materials PP-based. Now, as a new goal, the company will extend this lightweight materials to a high performance/high processing temperature polymers, PA and blends of PCABS.

ADVANCED THERMAL CONDUCTIVE POLYMERS FOR LED LIGHTING AND APPLICATIONS WHERE THERMAL DISSIPATION IS REQUIRED.

ADVANCED THERMAL CONDUCTIVE POLYMERS FOR LED LIGHTING AND APPLICATIONS WHERE THERMAL DISSIPATION IS REQUIRED.

07/06/2017
Demand for conductive plastics in thermal management applications continues to rise. An overheating of devices generated by smaller and more powerful electronic components open the need of more efficient thermal control. REPOL is involved in the CDTI project IDI 20151219 to develop materials with an improved heat dissipation and low thermal expansion for LED lighting applications and areas where these features are needed.

Latest trends in the development of engineering plastics.

01/06/2017
REPOL SL. and GAIKER-IK4 have jointly developed, in collaboration with Engel-Helmut Roegele, a seminar on “Trends and Latest Developments for Engineering Plastics”, where the latest developments and innovations in the sector are presented.

Last May 30, the GAIKER Technological Industrial Park hosted the seminar “Trends and Latest Developments for Engineering Plastics”, organised by Repol, S.L. and the GAIKER IK-4 technological centre itself. The aim was to present the latest breakthroughs and developments in replacing traditional materials for engineering plastics, while highlighting the advantages of the system.

The presentations approached all the different properties, opportunities and improvements that the engineering plastic sector may currently offer the rest of the business sectors. Engel shared the improvements that MuCell technology brings to injection processes; REPOL focused on some of the most relevant and innovative market opportunities, such as heat and electricity conductive polymers, or the different weight reduction techniques for thermoplastic components, as well as the growing need for the development of concrete regulations for each sector. As for GAIKER, they approached all the advantages that technological centres may offer other companies as far as knowledge and access to new technologies and materials are concerned, with the objective of further fostering innovation and growth.

We at Repol would like to sincerely thank everybody who attended the seminars.
REPOL IN OCEANIC PROJECT FOR THE ENVIROMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE ANTIFOULING SOLUTIONS

REPOL IN OCEANIC PROJECT FOR THE ENVIROMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE ANTIFOULING SOLUTIONS

25/05/2017
REPOL is developing a new polymer as coating material that will be sprayed on an experimental test battery. Such coating contains a specific and new antifouling molecule that will remain in the structure surface avoiding biomarine organisms stuck, giving a long life-time antifouling protection in an economically and environmentally sustainable way.

TOGETHER FOR A NEW HAITÍ

TOGETHER FOR A NEW HAITÍ

27/10/2016
In January 2010, Haití went through one of the worst moments in its history after suffering an earthquake which totally devastated the country. Now, in 2016, Hurricane Mathew has striked the area once more, causing hundreds of victims and, again, great devastation.
We at Grupo Repol perfectly know that it is difficult times for everybody, but we also know that nothing compares to the situation in Haití, where basic infrastructures are currently being reconstructed, and where basic needs such as water, sanitation or the protection of the rights of children and affected families is still under way.

That is why we have decided to start an initiative through which we will donate 1% of our total November turnover to cooperate in reconstructing the country and supporting its people through the organization Plan International. We know first hand how valuable and transparent their work is, and that is why we blindly trust them.
