Industrial Technical Center for Plastics and Composites



Are you looking to develop a new part or new product? Do you need support to ensure that both the design and manufacturing processes are reliable, risk-free, and robust?

Make sure the development of your new products or parts goes smoothly!

For any development of an industrial part, whether it be made out of plastic or any other material, it is crucial to first define your needs. Ensure that the development of your new product or part goes smoothly thanks to IPC’s multidisciplinary expertise on the selection of materials and technology transfer.

Product development

Plastic parts or products, films, packaging, and composites; our experts can help you at any stage of your project:

  • Analysis of the functional brief
  • Choice of materials
  • Concept and design with 3D finalisation
  • Study of concept and technical and economic validation
  • Calculations and digital validation
  • Process definition and development of tools
  • Product/process development
  • Functional validation
  • Industrial transfer

Development of functional composite parts

Do you develop assembled composite parts with added functions? IPC can help you directly integrate these functions and increase the added value of your parts. Whether it be mechanical functions (added ribs, local reinforcement, overmoulding, etc.) or electronic functions (SHM sensors, RFID, temperature, etc.), IPC has the expertise and equipment to help you in your projects.

Product ecodesign

Make your product more sustainable with the help of our ecodesign experts: Design and redesign plastic products in compliance with regulations and in line with the principles of sustainable development.

By incorporating ecodesign into the development of your plastic products, you can be sure of producing high-quality products that comply with the regulations, while reducing your carbon footprint. With new environmental requirements putting pressure on the plastics industry, opting for the circular economy means you can be sure of complying with standards and achieving the 2050 decarbonisation targets.
