SMART COVER POOL & DECK is a key project for Soprefa to develop and commercialize in the international market differentiated and high added value products when compared to the existing ones. These are based on new composite materials with high mechanical resistance and dimensional stability, in profiles for swimming pool covers with high resistance to deterioration and also super-reinforced structures.
- Co-promotion with R&D entities, CTCP, UMINHO and UAVEIRO, and the support of COMPETE 2020 are essential to achieve the proposed results in the expected time.
COMPETE 2020 and, in particular, the R & D projects in co-promotion is a very relevant tool to support the creation of new products with value and contribute to the competitiveness and internationalization of Portuguese SMEs.
