New composites for the future of Russia
On April 10, 2015, the All-Russian Scientific-Research Institute of Aviation Materials hosted the Conference "Out-of-autoclave technologies for processing of polymer composite materials of the new generation". During the event, the leading scientists of VIAM and aerospace enterprises made their presentations about new polymer composite materials, their properties and technologies of their application in structures of aircraft and engines.
The Conference was opened by candidate of science (Eng.) Dmitry I. Kogan, Deputy Director General of VIAM.
He welcomed the participants and wished them successful work. "We are very pleased that representatives of companies of United Aircraft Corporation JSC, " Russian Helicopters JSC", space-rocket industry, as well as leading universities, research institutes and state research centers gathered today in this hall", - said Dmitry Kogan. "When planning this conference, we wanted to make it not just a place to advertise our achievements, but a platform where professionals could work together to develop requirements for materials and technologies", - he added.
In his speech, Dmitry Kogan noted the important role of composite materials, which are one of the most popular materials of modern industrial production. According to him, VIAM pays a special attention to creation of PCM of new generation. "Composites developed in our institute are used at creation of new types of aviation and rocket engineering", - he said.
