Nanostructured Surfaces by Plastic Injection
Dr Tomás Baldi has recently defended his doctoral thesis at IQS, entitled Manufacturing of nanostructured surfaces by plastic injection molding, in which he managed to obtain nanostructured surfaces through a new plastic injection process.READ FULL NEW
IQS has a RAMAN DRX2 Microscope instrument for material characterization. This technique makes it possible to obtain information on the chemical composition of organic and inorganic compounds in any material condition and even in aqueous solutions.READ FULL NEW
Graflavor: a New Olfactory Pollutant Capturing System
IQS and the company Hausmann have collaborated in the development of an innovative system for the elimination of olfactory contamination in the process of water used in the manufacture of flavourings, based on its capture using graphene oxide.READ FULL NEW
Plastic Surfaces with Advanced Functionalities
Within the Industries of the Future community, IQS has participated in the PLASTFUN project where advanced surface functionalities and their large-scale production have been defined, and now has a validated simulation tool for optimising parameters under industrial conditions.READ FULL NEW
