A strong impact on organizations following work done by the Research Chair in developing renewable thermosetting resins for the composites industry
Table: Work Schedule
These new resins have a great impact on many levels, beginning with industrial partners who can aim for new markets in the fields of transportation, energy and sanitary infrastructures. The manufacturers of composites will also be the first to benefit from the research as the developed products will replace traditional resins currently used. Direct and indirect users of composites will also enjoy the health benefits. New markets will be accessible to the industry taking into account the unique characteristics of new products, which will generate new economic activity.
The knowledge acquired in this program will be used today and for future generations and will allow our nation to position itself in the global market for this expanding field. It is forward-thinking to envision the substitutes of the future, before legislative pressure, costs of non-renewable materials and ever-diminishing social acceptability forces the composites industry towards an abrupt change.
