"EXTRU-PUR Project"

First Extrusion Technology for Thermoset Polyurethanes

PROJECT FUNDED UNDER THE SME INSTRUMENT PROGRAM

Call: H2020-SMEInst-2018-2020-1
Type of action:
SME-1
Project number: 855513
Duration: 6 months (Feb-Jul 2019)

Funding received: 50.000 €

Improving windows performance

PUR profiles & frames for Highly Energy Efficient Windows 

- Single thermal + acoustic + moisture barrier material

- Anticorrosive + resistant material

- Any color and finishing is possible

- Light material for easy installation

- Biobased raw materials for low Carbon Footprint

- Recyclable at end-of-life

 

 

Extrusion is the most important manufacturing process in construction plastics but this manufacturing process has been limited to low performing thermoplastics (PE, PP, PVC, PET, PS, PC...)EXTRU-PUR is a disruptive technology able to introduce New Extruded Plastics made for first time from Polyurethane (PUR), enabling a large scale manufacturing of windows frames & profiles as circular high added value products at a competitive price within the exigent construction market.

 

 

"SAFE-PUR Project"

Novel PUR insulating foams with improved passive fire safety

PROJECT GRANTED WITH A SEAL OF EXCELLENCE UNDER THE SME INSTRUMENT PROGRAM

Call: H2020-SMEInst-2018-2020-1
Type of action:
SME-1
Project number: 876946

Improving PUR insulation

PUR Formulations for spray/injection foaming:

- Improved passive fire safety

- Highest thermal & acoustic insulation capacity

- Moisture and waterproofing barrier

- Fast installation and ease of use

- Biobased raw materials for low Carbon Footprint

- Recyclable at end-of-life

 

 

PUR foams are materials that show the best performance in thermal & acoustic insulation in buildings & houses. As opposite to all other insulating materials that must be applied as sheets or panels, PUR foams can be sprayed and injected providing a unique tightness that prevents heat leaking while creating a continuous non-permeable barrier to liquids and gases. However, conventional PUR foams show a highly dangerours fire behaviour and this lack of safety is one of the main barriers for PUR to become the leading insulating material. SAFE-PUR are novel foams that overcome the main problems related with PUR during a fire.
