CellMat Laboratory is working on the development of fireproof plastics using nanoparticles. The development of fire retardant plastics is very important for industrial sectors like construction, aeronautics an automotive due to the increasingly demanding regulations.
Professor José Antonio de Saja has been awarded with the Physics, Innovation and Technology Prize by the Royal Spanish Society of Physics with the sponsorship of the BBVA Foundation.
Javier Escudero, PhD student of CellMat Laboratory has been awarded with the Iberian Forum of PVC Prize by his project «Microcellular PVC: production, mechanical properties and advantages of these materials in structural applications».
CellMat Laboratory participates in a report about I+D+i, conducted by Radio Television of Castile and Leon.
CellMat Laboratory has started up a new research line based on the foaming of bioplastic materials. The objective is to produce cellular materials with improved properties and at the same time biodegradable.
The PhD Thesis presented by Eusebio Solorzano is the first thesis of the Condensed Matter Physics Department with an European Mention.
CellMat Laboratory is involved in a project to create foamed pipes based on polyolefins. These materials will reduce considerably the amount of raw material required for their production maintaining their characteristics and properties.
Four researchers of CellMat Laboratory: Prof. Jose Antonio de Saja, prof. Miguel Ángel Rodriguez Perez, Eusebio Solorzano and Jose Antonio Reglero have been awarded with the Talgo Prize for Technological Innovation.
