Title: High throughput synthesis of nanostructured vitrimer-based thermoplastics

 

Objective:

High throughput synthesis of nanostructured vitrimer-based thermoplastics to obtain a library of injectable materials with controlled morphologies and residual functionalities useful for adhesion, paintability/printability and high-temperature creep resistance of structural parts widely used in the automotive sector.

Expected results:

Nanostructured vitrimer-based thermoplastics will be obtained by a careful and multidisciplinary investigation of the relationships between formulation, processing conditions, rheological and morphological/physical properties. These materials will be obtained by high-throughput processing (internal mixer, extruder or elongational mixer) and through fine control of mixing conditions, temperature and time monitoring of the melt viscosity. The resulting materials should display much higher throughput and easier processing than classical vitrimers and much higher creep resistance than benchmarked materials highly employed in e.g. the automotive sector.
