At 15:00 during the REPAIR3D Open Day 2021, Ine De Vilder will give an introduction to the DECOAT project.
Participation in the workshop is free, but registration is required. More information about the workshop and downloadable announcement and registration form are available at the project website.
The main goal of DECOAT is to enable circular use of textiles and plastic parts with (multilayer) ‘coatings’, which are typically not recyclable yet. These ‘coatings’ comprise functional and performance coatings and paints as well as adhesion layers. Therefore, novel triggerable smart polymer material systems and the corresponding recycling processes will be developed. The triggerable solutions will be based on smart additives (like microcapsules or microwave triggered additives) for the ‘coating’ formulations that will be activated by a specific trigger (heat, humidity, microwave, chemical).
