NANOLEAP Nanocomposite for building constructions and civil infrastructures: European network pilot production line to promote industrial application case

Prof. Isabel Rodriguez

NANOLEAP Nanocomposite for building constructions and civil infrastructures: European network pilot production line to promote industrial application case
    Funding : H2020-NMP-PILOTS-2014 n° 646397
    Duration: 2015 - 2018
    42 months

The NANOLEAP project brings together a European Network of pilot facilities focused on scaling up innovative nanocomposite based technologies and processing methods for the construction sector.

Through an open access to the pilot facilities, the goal of this infrastructure is to support the research activities of European SMEs in the construction sector enabling the progress of nanocomposite products to next steps of technology deployment and to enter in the commercialization stage.

Ten pilot plants participate in the network developing innovative applications of polymeric nanocomposites in the areas such as:

• Coated nanoparticles with improved compatibility with the matrix
• Antiweathering and anticorrosion nanocomposite coatings for the protection of structures exposed to aggressive environments
• Multifunctional polymeric nanocomposites providing environmental resistance (antimicrobial UV protection) and smart applications to traditional construction materials self-cleaning, hydrophobicity, early warning crack or water leak alarm
• Prefab lightweight elements such as aerogels mechanically reinforced with nanoparticles for high thermal insulation applications

IMDEA Nanoscience with an imprinting roll to roll pilot plant participates actively in the development of multifunctional polymeric nanocomposites through surface nano engineering.
