Do you want to develop mono-material 3D plastic parts with functional surfaces like antimicrobial, anti-scratch, self-cleaning, anti-squeak or aesthetic properties ?
It’s the goal of the H2020 research project HIMALAIA.
To enable the implementation of these properties, several topics have been developed on a dedicated platform :
Mold texturation technologies through surface treatment and laser texturing
Optimization of micro and nanostructures replication efficiency on parts surface during the injection molding process.
In-line quality control of functional parts
The HIMALAIA project aims to develop a cost-efficient, environmentally friendly and adaptable manufacturing platform for the mass manufacture of 3D and/or large thermoplastic parts with antimicrobial (antibacterial and anti-fouling), anti-scratch, self-cleaning (hydrophobic and oleophobic), anti-squeak (undesired noise produced when two parts move against each other) and aesthetic properties by replicating specially designed micron and sub-micron surface topographies.
The HIMALAIA project aims to demonstrate the economic benefit and viability of coating-free manufacturing technologies for the production of highly functional polymer surfaces. The injection moulding-based process-chain developed in the project will represent a major cornerstone of tomorrow’s factories.
