Innovation Booster Applied Circular Sustainability
From 2021 to 2024, the Innovation Booster (IB) Applied Circular Sustainability supports the pre-development of radical solution ideas for 100% recyclable products and systems - and this for all industries and economic sectors in Switzerland.
Printer for optical lenses for fast prototyping and small series
A lens printer is intended to produce high-quality optical lenses with selectable focal lengths for small series at low cost.
With the innovation project Gluepack a new technology will be developed to connect single punched laminations to a stator / rotor stack by adhesive. This adhesive stacking technology increases the efficiency of electric motors without affecting its economy.
Adhesive for sports equipment with broad adhesion range and optimal curing process
In the project, a new adhesive system with optimum curing characteristics and a wide adhesion spectrum for a wide range of materials is being developed to produce durable and long-lasting bonds in the sports sector. Process times are to be shortened and production capacities increased. New innovative materials with ...
Development of a structural rubber adhesive
The aim of the project is to develop an innovative rubber adhesive technology for structural applications with good adhesion spectrum on different surfaces, tolerance to different thermal expansion coefficients of different materials such as aluminum, fiber composites, steel and combinations thereof, and high ...
Functional polyolefinic adhesives
The aim of the project is to develop new polyolefinic adhesives for use as hotmelt adhesive films. Adhesion improvement to various substrates such as aluminum is achieved by the targeted introduction of functional groups. Maleic anhydride (MAH) serves as one possible functional group. Similar products are used, for ...
