54 Elastic fast swelling hydrogel
A fast responsive superporous hydrogel technology. The crosslinking is maintained by hydrolyzable diacrylate polymer and vinyl modified polypeptide. As these crosslinks break down, the material will start to fall apart and shrink. In addition, this superporous hydrogel is elastic (mechanically resilient) as it can be stretched more than 100% of its original size.

33 Electrospun glass and carbon nanofiber technology
A new electrospun glass and carbon fiber technology which creates a non-woven fabric. One application is to use the fabric in interlaminar applications to significantly increase the strength, impact and fatigue resistance of composites. The non-woven material also has uses in the filtration and medical devices. The technology substantially reduces material weight and production costs.

23 Making adhesives surfaces reversible
Thermo-expandable microspheres (TEMs), which consist of an outer shell of copolymer thermoplastic resin encapsulating a liquid hydrocarbon, when the heat trigger is applied at command the microspheres expand to over 100 times their volume, acting as a pressure activator to cleanly break the bond at the interface, and the cohesive structure. A key part of the patented technology is the functionalization of the TEMs surfaces, e.i. a conducting material is applied onto the polymeric shells of the microspheres. This additional layer enables quicker ways to get the heat to the TEM surface without damaging the material itself.

6 Process for industrial production of nanoparticles using supercritical water process
The use of hydrothermal conditions allows the very fast synthesis of high added value nanoparticles from an aqueous solution of metallic salts. This technology has proven being very versatile versus composition, synthesizing very high quality NP at both lab and pilot scale, with high reproducibility.The process includes a wall-free mixing technology which brings stability of the reaction volume and allows a fully continuous operation of the production line.
