We are continuously striving to expand the capabilities of our coatings, and this project aims at the optimization of silicone emulsions used for example in the manufacturing of bakery papers.
The project will focus on the development and implementation of analytical methods for the study of the stability of our emulsions, which is a critical parameter for their industrial application. The work will involve:

1/ Preparation of aqueous silicone emulsions (formulation);

2/ Methods development (stability tests, rheology…);

3/ Characterization of the emulsions; potentially

4/ Coating on different substrates & performance measurements.

During the stay, the intern will be interacting with experts from mainly Product Development but also Technical Service and Analytical.

Requisiti principali:
  • You are currently studying for a Master's Degree or equivalent in Chemistry and/or Materials Science.
  • You are rigorous, an excellent lab worker, hands-on oriented, as well as a good team player.
  • Autonomy and flexibility are expected.
  • Working environment is French and/or English speaking.

This offer is not limited to graduation year students, more junior candidates will also be considered, based on talents and competencies.
