RESEARCH AND INNOVATION

The company flagship

RESEARCH CENTRE AND NEW COMPOUNDS

Our company takes great pride in our research centre, staffed with researchers and analysts devoted to development and production of new materials.

We place particular emphasis on perfecting compounds with controlled dimensional shrinkage, antibacterial characteristics, and resistance to highly hostile environment agents such as heat, detergents, atmospheric agents and solar exposure.

RESEARCH PROJECTS

For the past several years we have worked together with the University of Naples Department of Chemical, Materials and Production Engineering on projects for the study and development of new polypropylene matrix compounds containing natural fibres, the optimisation of processing technologies, and the development and application of advanced thermoplastic materials in the automotive sector.

In addition, we have been developing formulations of new lower weight expandable polypropylene-based compounds, as well as more environmentally friendly materials.

LAPO engages in the study, analysis and development of new polymer formulations that meet objectives of:

  • reduced emissions of volatile organic compounds, in compliance with new regulations;
  • reduction of defects deriving from processing operations (scratch resistance; zero-gap and tiger-stripe solutions).
