In 2013, we set up graphene-polymer engineering R&D center to work on the development and application of grapheme based polymer. In 2014, we built a R&D center in Belgium which is mainly used to conduct introduction of state of the art technologies at present.
As for research and development, we establish a professional R&D team inside the company which is composed of doctors majored in macromolecule, and perform positive cooperation with domestic and overseas universities, research institutions, well-known enterprises and government and regulatory bodies outside the company to build a committee of experts.
We have a national recognized testing laboratory and a large group of high level and quality technical talents. We employ domestic sophisticated experts to be technical director. In addition, we keep close cooperation and communication with many authoritative organizations and enterprises in pipe technologies, to work jointly on the development and innovation of Chinese pipe technology and other polymers.
