VTT has advanced pilot plants for biomaterial processing and converting to new innovative and sustainable industrial products.
The pilot-scale research environments are available for fibre and foam web production, roll-to-roll coating and packaging material research, and plastic materials and biocomposites.
New innovative industrial materials
The VTT research infra offers modern and flexible facilities and skilled personnel for performing application and converting development, thus complementing the development chain for new biobased materials.
More traditional development and scale-up work, such as testing of new raw-materials, additives, process chemicals or processing parameters, can also be performed effectively.
Plastic materials and composites
VTT has comprehensive research facilities for the processing of plastics and composites. These include various pre- and post-processing equipment as well as extrusion, compounding and moulding machines from laboratory to pilot-scale.
Surface treatment concept (SUTCO)
The concept offers innovative surface treatment possibilities based on flexible, modular construction.
Versatility of the surface treatment line opens new opportunities for the development of new products, processes and to trial new ideas economically for chemical suppliers, printing houses, converters, brand owners and for industry manufacturing various base materials.
