Materials, Adhesion and Polymers

Our Materials Area was built in 2009 with the aim of supporting furniture companies in the development of innovative activities related to materials.


Its main lines of research focus on the development of materials with improved and innovative properties, as well as on the reuse, recycling and upcycling of materials used in the furniture industry, promoting the transition of this traditional sector to a circular model.
