Petroceramics participates and coordinates long-term, innovation projects, funded by the Italian Government and the European Union.

Petroceramics is currently involved in the following funded projects:

  • ROLL-IT H2020-SME1 (Radically innovative technology for efficient manufacturing of preforms for ceramic matrix composite (CMC) brake disks) aims to industrialize and commercialize a fully automated additive manufacturing techniques for shaping of near-to-shape preforms for CMC brake disks
  • COMETAS MANUNET17 (COsteffective enabling MatErials and Technologies for Access to Space) aim is to introduce and validate a series of new processing technologies, which can significantly reduce the costs and increase the reliability of the materials used to manufacture chemical propulsion systems i.e. Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs) which are at the base of the space access.Partnership: PETROCERAMICS SPA (coordinator), POLITECNICO DI MILANO, RAFAEL ADVANCED DEFENCE SYSTEMS LTD, SALENTEC s.r.l., UNIVERSITY OF PERUGIAFor more information visit

  • VESTLIFE: the goal of VESTLIFE is to create protective clothing that are effective for defence purposes, but lighter, more flexible and comfortable at the same time.
