Description of activities
INNOmaterials is a recent company born end 2013 in Switzerland and in 2015 in Luxembourg. Its concept is to help industries solving their technical problems, or propose them new materials by using a wide professional background or organizing external developments through an international R&D network.
One of its core business is the development and production of very specific rubber formulations for the bands used by the luxury Swiss watch industry. INNOmaterials is a strategic partner with Solvay for the fluoro-elastomers used in those formulations. Aside from that, INNOmaterials is active in very different domains such as valuation of various rubber wastes products, use of durable perfumes into rubber or plastics, development of very high strength plastics, low-noise cobbles, or even a new type of tennis balls with a longer lifespan
Main application domains
