Many strategic sectors of today’s society demand materials with advanced properties. Strategies to produce such advanced materials focus on the use of complex multiphase formulations and novel production processes. This combination allows the development of tailor-made materials with different functionalities capable of maximizing their performance.
The understanding of the complex mechanisms underlying the formation of multiphase cellular materials, together with an in-depth knowledge of the phenomena occurring during the foaming process, has enabled the CellMat Laboratory to develop multifunctional cellular materials.
The use of conventional and non-conventional experimental techniques and the use of advanced modelling of physical properties are the key factors that have allowed the creation of this line of research.
