Composites Laboratory

The Composites Laboratory is fully equipped for the preparation of bio-based composite materials. This laboratory has the capacity to produce composites via compression and thermo-hydro-mechanical treatments. Polymer blends and composites can also be manufactured through injection molding. In addition to conventional composite preparation, this laboratory contains state-of-the-art equipment that can produce thermochemically modified materials via torrefaction and carbonization, new adhesive formulations, and impregnated materials and composites. The Composites Laboratory also houses equipment for drying and conditioning as well as assessing fundamental bio-based material properties, including moisture content, density, weight, and other dimensions.
