CREPEC is an interuniversity research center joining 50 of Quebec’s scientists specialised in the development of new high performance polymers and composites and their transformation and implementation process according to the two following axis and related research themes.
Axis 1 of CREPEC’s program will focus on two themes: polymer blends and bio-based polymers also called bioplastics. The first theme answers to growing demands for functional composite materials rather than those with structural or mechanical purposes. The second theme answers to growing demands for bio-based materials (and sometimes biodegradable) to replace petroleum-based products.
Axis 2 of CREPEC’s program will focus on two themes: composite materials and high performance structures and nanostructured composites. The first theme answers to growing demands for more secure and economic use of composite materials. The second theme answers to growing demands for new nanostructured materials with multifunctional properties.
