AIMPLAS, Technological Institute of Plastics located in Valencia, is a private, non-profit Association with more than 600 associated companies created in 1990. The fields of work are related to technological research and development on thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials & products, its transformation processes and their recyclability and sustainability. Generating new knowledge and technologies, AIMPLAS helps companies to increase their effectiveness and competitiveness. AIMPLAS has a broad expertise in the fields of recycling, compatibilization, reactive extrusion, biopolymers and renewable source materials, special assisted processing technologies and nanocomposites, gained during the last years in the frame of EU and national projects.
Role in FLEXPOL
AIMPLAS commences with the compounding of the polypropylene material and contribute the rheological, thermal as well as mechanical characterization of the material. Throughout the project, AIMPLAS also advises in terms of material recycling. They develop and operate a special extrusion process to ensure the highly standardized quality for medical applications. Ultimately, they are responsible for the up-scaling of the process to industrial measures.
