What is Hypucem?
intends to set-up a new-technology-driven business for introducing a recently patented polyurethane-cement hybrid foam into the building market.
The idea is to set-up a business in which the R&D as well as the material design capabilities of the founding team are used to transfer innovations from materials and processes technologies to the field of construction, which is more and more demanding in terms of technical requirements (functional, energetic and structural), costs, and application time.
This will be achieved by introducing a new material whose properties can be tailored to different applications. At the same time, the new materials/technologies are characterized by a strong capability of adapting to existing materials/technologies with the aim of improving the energetic, structural and functional properties of walls and floorings.
The business will integrate the outsourced production of the new hybrid material with the new ways of designing structural and architectural parts of buildings. In fact, the possibility of optimizing the energetic, structural and functional properties of the new material, will allow the design of building elements with shapes and properties tailored to specific needs.
The company intends to start the business by selling the licence of the patented product to insulating panel manufacturers. In particular, HYPUCEM will assist the customer by providing the material formulations, designed to obtained specific properties, and all the technological specification for the production of the hybrid panels. The raw material will be supplied by using blind formulations from different companies in order to better protect the patented technology.
In the mean time, collaborations with research institutions will be implemented in order to develop and test new products based on hybrid concepts able to satisfy specific requirement of customers and market.
