Challenge 8

Challenge purpose: Multifunctional Composite Materials

About the challenge

The challenge is to find innovative materials or innovative coatings to confer multifunctional properties (enhanced electrical conductivity, gas barrier, impermeability to moisture, de-icing, heat barrier etc..) to composites

Main section of application:

  • Aueronautics

Main cross-cutting topics:

  • Design & smart functions

Scope of the challenge

  • At the moment there are different proposal to enhance the functional properties to composite materials but all of them are at low TRL.

  • All of these solutions seem to be very high cost and seems to require very difficult manufacturing processes.

Challenge objectives

  • Evaluate and select one or more technology or product to give smart functionalities to composite materials that have a positive business case.
