Composite Materials and Structures
INEGI has a prestigious tradition in composite materials and structures. Work developed in this field, such as the PLUMA gas bottle projects and the collaborations with ESA and NASA, among others, show the Institute’s know-how in this subject. INEGI presents solutions for developing applications in which the low weight factor plays a decisive role.
The Institute works with composite laminate materials, polymer concretes and glass and carbon fibres. It also develops products and advanced structural solutions, and implements new technologies for producing materials.
INEGI also has several laboratories for material testing, such has materials reaction to smoke and fire, thermomechanics, ageing, deformability, hardness, fatigue, among others.
