VIAM at «Composite-Expo – 2014»
The All-Russian scientific-research institute of aviation materials (VIAM) took part in the 7th International specialized exhibition «Composite-Expo 2014» which was held on February 25-27, 2014 in the International Exhibition Center «Crocus-Expo».
Exposition of VIAM (J 03 stand, pavilion 1, hall 1) was devoted to unique developments of composites of the new generation, prepregs and PCM binders, radio absorbing materials, production of ceramic composite materials and complex protection against corrosion, aging and biodestruction of composite structures. Representatives of the institute told to the visitors about works and achievements of VIAM in these areas.
In addition, specialists of VIAM had a good chance to examine expositions of other enterprises of the industry and to carry out a number of negotiations.
Moreover, representatives of the institute took part in traditional scientific and practical conference «Current state and development prospects of production and application of composite materials in Russia», where VIAM acted as co-organizer.
In particular, Candidate of Sciences (Tech.) Denis V. Grashchenkov, deputy director general of VIAM, made a report devoted to the subprogram «Development of production of composite materials (composites) and articles from them» of the state program «Development of the industry and an improvement of its competitiveness». He focused attention of the attendees on the solution of the tasks set by leaders of our country and told about special measures undertaken by VIAM in this area. «For a successful commercialization of projects in the field of PCM it is necessary to take into account the basic principle of the material – technology – design integrity», Denis Grashchenkov emphasized. He also noted that VIAM pays huge attention to protection of PCM against action of different climatic factors, and to training of employees for the composite industry.
Candidate of Sciences (Tech.) Alexander E. Raskutin, chief of laboratory, told to the attendees about polymer composite materials of new generation based on VSE-1212 high deformable binder.
In his turn, Evgeny V. Nikolaev, chief of sector, made the report «Research of moisture absorption and climatic resistance of PCM under laboratory and field conditions».
Actual problems and new developments in the field of composite materials were discussed at the conference. In addition, the specialists engaged in the composite industry exchanged of their experience on design, service and upgrading of equipment.
Let us note that «Composite-Expo» is the only international special exhibition of composite materials, technology and equipment in Russia, which demonstrates clearly advances in the field of materials science and is aimed to promote the exhibitors to set new business contacts and cooperation.
VIAM invites all interested persons to visit our exposition at J 03 stand (pavilion 1, hall 1).
Within the frame of the exhibition Denis Grashchenkov, Alexander Raskutin and Vladislav Zyryanov, head of «International cooperation and foreign economic activity» department held negotiations with representatives of Zoltek Corporation Mr. Bill Regan, vice-president (VP-Engineering and Technology Group) and Mrs. Mariann Tarai, European Sales and Marketing Manager. The parties discussed prospects and possible trends of cooperation.
Furthermore, Vladislav Zyryanov and Alexander Raskutin negotiated with George Sui, general manager of Aramicore Composite Co., Ltd. (China). Let us note, that he is the former employee of the Beijing institute of aviation materials (BIAM, Beijing), with which VIAM has been cooperating effectively for many years.
