MODIFIER

The basis of the multi-purpose modifier is the quasicrystal powder of the Al-Cu-Fe system
Quasicrystals:
The electron beam is scattered with the formation of a pronounced diffraction pattern, on which the location of the maxima has a fifth-order symmetry (icosahedron symmetry).
Quasicrystals are located between crystalline and amorphous materials.
Characteristics:
Density: 4 g / cm3
Dispersion of base powder: 50-70 microns
Friction coefficient of steel: 0.14
Hardness: 800-1000 HV
Thermal conductivity: 2 W / (m•K)
Resistivity (at room temperature): 4.5 mOhm∙cm

Introduction of the optimal amount of the modifier in the polymer.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

  • Increase of mechanical characteristics and adhesion to metals of polymers, elastomers and materials based on them;
  • Increase of working capacity and resource of friction units and mechanisms in normal operating conditions, as well as in abnormal conditions of “oil starvation” and ” dry friction»;
  • Reinforcement of metals with the purpose of creation of antifriction composite materials;
  • Formation of coatings on glass and metals to reduce the coefficient of friction and increase the level of hydrophobicity;
  • Development of bioactivators.

Market potential:

  • For modifier – 10 tons / year (10 million USD / year)
  • For polymers – 200 tons / year (240 million USD / year)
  • Increases the strength characteristics of rubbers up to 25%;
  • Increases adhesion to metals to a level higher than cohesion (destruction occurs through rubber, there is no peeling from the metal).

 

Market potential:

  • For modifier – 100 tons / year (100 million USD / year)
  • For rubber – 2000 tons / year (2400 million USD / year)
