Welcome to the PLATFORM project website. PLATFORM is a research project funded by the European commission under the H2020 Framework Programme. This project aims to develop open access pilot lines for the industrial production of buckypapers, CNT treated prepreg and CNT doped non-woven veils for composite applications in sectors such as aerospace and automotive.
Two FP7 European projects -ELECTRICAL and SARISTU- developed methods to manufacture CNT reinforced multifunctional composites compatible with current industrial manufacturing processes. According to the results, three CNT integration strategies appeared as promising methods to be used in industrial scale manufacturing processes: buckypapers, CNTtreated prepreg and CNT doped nonwoven veils.
Although each of the technologies can act separately they can be combined synergistically in a way that a higher multifunctional level can be achieved according to the final requirements of the application.
