The main advantage of this innovative GFRP honeycomb, alongside with high stress-strain, soundproof and thermal-insulating properties, is improved flexibility making it possible to recommend it for production of cylindrical sandwich structures. The work on the development of material was done as part of the scientific reserve for organization of its production at the enterprise for various industries.
“The unique GFRP honeycombs on the basis of glass fabric and polymeric binder developed at our enterprise will permit one to increase strength properties of products and make them attractive for various industries, first of all, aviation and space”, said Kirill Shubsky, Director General of the holding company RT-Chemcomposite.
“Development of innovative economy is one of the strategic tasks of the region, high priority of which was repeatedly stressed at the meeting of collegiums of Kaluga Region Ministries.
