Research topics

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 : High performance polymer systems

    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.

  • Axe 2 : High performance composite systems

    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.

Whether you are a prospective student, a scientist seeking collaborations or an industrial entrepreneur in need of scientific guidance to help modernize and innovate your company, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information. CREPEC could help you benefit from its members knowledge and impressive range of equipment, which could be the first step towards achieving your endeavors.
