International Cooperation. Our Partners

1 Cooperation with OOO SKTB ElPa (Uglich, Russian Federation)

In accordance with the thematic plan of research in 2016, the contractual theme of CD 13-008 "Adjustment of the composition and technological regime of the formation of nanostructured material for sealing the housing elements of quartz resonators" was carried out. A low-melting oxyfluoride glass was synthesized for a nano-structured sealing coating used as a glass cement for the connection of quartz parts of high-temperature manometric resonators. An experimental batch of glass granulate was produced, which was introduced into production as a glass cement with an economic effect of 1 million tons. 850 thousand rubles, which is confirmed by the act of implementation.

2 Cooperation with OOO Etiprodaks, NITU MISiS (Moscow, Russian Federation)

Analytical review of patent and information sources of literature in the field of production of continuous electrical insulating glass fibers; Synthesis of glasses "Аdvantex" and boroaluminosilicate E-glasses with boron oxide content of 3.0-9.5% by weight. And their technological properties are investigated. A comparative evaluation of the speed of silicate and glass formation processes in the melting of glasses from charge compositions of various compositions was carried out, the temperature dependence of the viscosity of glasses and their crystallization ability was studied. The temperatures of the technological scale of viscosity (cooking temperature, production, vitrification) and the upper glass crystallization temperature, the temperature coefficient of linear expansion, density, softening temperature, mechanical strength, chemical resistance, breaking load of fibers, alkali resistance and acid resistance are determined.

The contractual theme of HD 15-491 "Investigation of the corrosion resistance of refractories of baddeleyite-corundum composition to the effect of molten glass of alkali boroaluminosilicate glass" was performed. The synthesis of glasses of three compositions in the system R2O-RO-B2O3-Al2O3-SiO2 (where R is Na, K, Ca, Mg) is carried out; Tests with static method of corrosion resistance of baddeleyite-corundum refractories to the effect of glass mass of synthesized glass compositions. Financing of the works in the reporting period was not carried out.

The negotiable topic HD 15-421 "The use of colemanite in the production of continuous fiberglass" was performed. The efficiency of the use of colemanite in the production of continuous fiberglass is analyzed. Advisory services were provided at the International Forum "Glass and Modern Technologies - XXI".

The project FF theme 15-092 "Development of new best-practice methods for the synthesis of ceramic, metal and metal-ceramic materials of various morphologies" is being carried out jointly with the Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution of Higher Professional Education "National Research Technological University "MISiS", Moscow. The synthesis of ceramics based on aluminum borate, as well as metals (Ni, Fe, Cu, Co) and metal composites Ni / MgAl2O4, Co / MgAl2O4 and Cu / MgAl2O4 at exothermic interaction in solutions (solution combustion synthesis) is carried out. The obtained materials have the form of a highly porous foam with an average crystal structure size of 30-80 nm. All the materials obtained are characterized by a developed surface (28-30 m2 / g) and particle sizes from data of X-ray diffraction analysis of 30-50 nm.
