Iinteractive experience at the CARATS Animation area.

A selection of 6 projects was presented in a fun and educational way: researchers and industrialists were available to answer all your questions. This allowed visitors to iscover the brilliance of the French research group with different cutting edge inventions:

  • Sublimation of the material by mastering the laser through the mirror
  • Emergence of an eco-responsible composite with luxurious finishes
  • Creation of new biodegradable polymers associated with gold nanoparticles
  • Botanical and cosmetic tactility expertise

The 6 selected projects for the luxury packaging market :

Biofilux : Polymer films with gold and silver nanoparticles. The answer to the need for beautiful packaging in biodegradable materials with high aesthetic standards.

 

Coslife : Synergy of four laboratories on the cosmetic product value chain from formulation to packaging.

 

Composite : Resurrection of the French linen industry through the creation of a new composite. A material that meets the current challenges of sustainable development and recycling of polymers. .

Matlux :  An innovative material with surprising visual and optical characteristics. Biosourced polymer with gold and silver nanoparticles.

Pollux : Methodology combining instrumental and sensorial measurement to meet the need to control the perception of transparency and translucency in cosmetic packaging.

Textulaser : A technology at the service of excellence and precision in Fashion and Luxury. Bringing material effects and innovative physical properties to surfaces.

 

Decrypt the results of years of research by watching the replay of the exceptional Symposium “Sublimating matter by CARATS” and by downloading the white paper.

 

Led by journalist Laurence Dorlhac, a specialist in the popularization of science researchers and industrialists of the CARATS network will unveil a multitude of new materials. Inspiring exchanges around materials and innovation processes, creation, sublimation of materials and the challenges of tomorrow.
