Portugal 2020 Projects
The REVIPOLISHED project targets the development of integrated solutions for polished porcelain tiles that, on the one hand, combine aesthetics with functionality and, on the other hand, increase and contribute to energy efficiency in the process and in buildings.
To achieve the project’s goals, two R&D lines are considered:
1) R&D in surface treatments to endow the polished porcelain tiles with improved stain resistance properties, based on energetically-efficient technologies (UV technology);
2) R&D in the integration of sensorisation in ceramics, with focus on the development and integration of printed sensors, on the development of control hardware and firmware and on the development of electric connection systems.
Development of an innovative surface treatment for enhanced durability and stain resistance, based on energy-efficient technological processes (UV-curing technology);
Smart electronics embedding to create innovative smart porcelain tiles, which are connected to the lighting system, for use in smart and energy-efficient buildings;
Smart communication and monitoring of domestic power systems, in the forefront of the area of domotics systems currently marketed;
Transversal sequencing of tiles that makes it easier to apply on site.
