Samples of polyamide-6 produced by JSC Grodno azot were obtained. Samples of composite materials were manufactured using the LFT technology, and we began work on evaluating their physicomechanical properties.
NDA with "AVTOTOR Holding" (BMW, KIA, Hyundai, Genesis cars production in Russia) was signed. We received lists of details and started to explore possibilities of their production at the composite structures factory.
Developed design and optimization of car passengers back-seat. Performed engineering and optimization of the escalator step (for JSC "Mogilevliftmash" and JSC "SIPR S OP"); Optimized SMC prepregs formulation using different types of hardeners for more efficient styrene binding; Started work on the study of polyester styrene-free resins in the compositions; Developed digital models of the LFT-D and Fiberforge/Fibercon lines. They were designed to refine cyclograms of technological processes and visualize the production cycle.
Today we held a working meeting with representatives of JSC "Institute of Plastics named after G.S. Petrov". General Director of the Institute Tatyana Andreeva and director of the Scientific Institute of Polymeric Material Tatyana Prudskova got acquainted with the technologies and equipment of the SP LLC "Composite Structures" project, talked about their developments in the field of superstructural polymers and matrix systems. The parties agreed on the main areas of cooperation, outlined steps for joint promotion and integration to the programs of the Union State of Russia and Belarus.
