Dalia Morcillo García-Morato
I am from Madrid, but currently I am working at BMW Materials, Process Technology in Munich, Germany as a material expert of team decoration and emissions inside the vehicle and I’m studying the online master’s degree in product design and modeling at the ESd in Barcelona.
In 2015 I wrote my master´s Thesis on the subject of “Effect and secondary effect of smell capturers” at BMW Group in Munich, as part of my Materials Engineering degree. I studied Chemical Engineering at the University Rey Juan Carlos in Madrid, Spain and have continued with Materials Engineering at the Technical University in Munich (TUM) in collaboration with the Complutense University in Madrid.
My experience as a specialist in interior materials of the vehicle, has allowed me to know the needs of the industry to select new materials and I would like to design materials that are part of the space around us and that interferes so directly in the feelings and sensations of People and consumers.
Soft / hard: Spongy with rough surface
Shiny / matt: Matt
Texture: Granulated foam
1.6 g agar agar
1.4 g glycerin
1 drop of soap
Mix in a saucepan, heat to 100 ° C
Shake so bubbles form until a viscous paste forms
Add the granulated active carbon in the mixture
Dump into a mold and add active carbon on the surface
Cool and unmold
- Coatings in architecture
- Foams in armchairs
- Foams for the formation of emission-free mattresses
- Foams for car seats
Since the greatest amount of volatile organic compounds come from foams, it occurred to me as a final result, to create a foam to support the absorbent materials. The foams have a large internal surface and high porosity, making it a perfect base for granulated absorbents that can continue to capture the VOC without saturating.
