Product safety analyses of food contact materials
Product safety is an issue of very high concern for all kinds of materials and products. One of RISE core activity in this area is analyses of materials intended for food contact (FCM).
Modeling soft materials
To understand how foods and other soft materials can be designed for obtaining desired and optimal properties, it is necessary to understand how materials work on the microscopic level. Modeling, simulation, and data analysis and …
Performance chemistry in papermaking
The field of performance chemistry in papermaking includes finding the optimal use and performance of various functional additives for each case. The desired effects may be increased fibre-fibre interaction and bonding, control of…
Manufacturing of nanocellulose
Nanocellulose is a material derived from wood fibres. It is exceptionally strrong on a par with Kevlar. However, in contrast to fossil-based material, nanocellulose is completely renewable. Previously, the production was too energ…
Sales of hygiene products has grown rapidly in recent years. The competition on the market is fierce, which puts pressure on production costs. Meanwhile, the use of sustainable materials and minimising energy use has become import…
Rheology describes texture, flowability and product stability leading to the right product properties, ability to process and shelf life.
It is not only metals that rust but also plastics or polymers can corrode in different environments. This is exactly what polymer corrosion is all about. We are internationally leading experts in the field and have over 30 years …
Innovation support for small and medium sized enterprises
One of RISE’s most important tasks is to strengthen the competitiveness of small and medium-sized Swedish businesses (SMEs). Our focus is always on the needs of the individual company and we offer customised support and expertise …
Corrosion or rust can be combated in many ways. The method of corrosion protection that is most appropriate in the individual case depends on factors such as the environment, application areas, service life requirements and more. …
