Friction Composites and Products for Stationary Friction Units









Linked profile in other language
Bozhanova Elena
V.A. Belyi Metal Polymer Research Institute offers consumers friction composites and products for stationary friction units under a manufacturing agreement and is looking for partners to conclude a distribution services agreement.
Friction composite materials are designed to work in brake and transmission units under conditions of stationary friction, in particular, when obtaining high-quality metal cord produced at the open joint-stock company "Belarusian Metallurgical Plant", ensuring the stability of the friction moment, an acceptable temperature balance of the friction pair, low vibroacoustic activity, high resistance to wear and contact loads in tension units.

Composites have high chemical and wear resistance, improved deformation strength and a stable friction coefficient in the range of 0.20..0.32. Can be operated at temperatures of 213..673 °K in contact with aggressive media - acids, alkalis, oil products; in conditions of dust and vibration; sliding speeds up to 10 m/s and specific loads up to 4 MPa.
Advantages and Innovations
Products from the developed composites have a price 2..3 times lower in comparison with similar products of Italian, Austrian and German production. At the same time, they provide a service life of stationary friction units at given operating parameters no less than foreign counterparts.

Additional comments
At present, V.A. Belyi Metal Polymer Research Institute is an academic scientific and technical complex, working in the direction of fundamental and applied research in two main scientific areas:
- physical and chemical bases for the development of composite materials based on organic and inorganic polymers;
- physics, chemistry and surface mechanics, analysis of contact interactions, friction, wear and lubrication in technical and biological systems.

Within these areas, research is being developed in such areas as:
- interfacial phenomena in polymer-polymer and metal-polymer systems;
- weather resistance and predicting the durability of polymer composites;
- adaptive materials and structures;
- physics and chemistry of lubricating action;
- methods of sealing and filtration;
- methods for calculating products made of composite materials;
- recycling of multicomponent polymer systems;
- physics and technology of thin films;
- methods of surface analysis, description and classification of its topography at the micro- and nanolevel;
- solution -contact and thermal problems of tribotechnics;
- space tribotechnics;
- friction and lubrication of natural and artificial joints;
- diagnostics and monitoring of friction units of machines.

Areas of possible cooperation:
- Physics, chemistry, mechanics of polymers and composites based on them;
- Studies of the processes of friction, wear and lubrication of solids, examination and forecasting of the resource of friction units;
- Technologies for applying polymer, metal-polymer and ceramic coatings for various purposes (decorative, anti-corrosion, anti-friction, electrical insulating, etc.) and equipment for their implementation;
- Surface probe microscopy, research of surface micromechanical properties, modeling of contact processes at micro- and nanolevels, production of tribometric equipment and tools for surface scanning probe microscopy;
- Design and manufacture of technological equipment and tooling for molding products from polymeric materials, software tools for technological processes;
- Active film materials for food packaging;
- Anti-friction and non-asbestos friction materials;
- Sealing materials and designs of movable and fixed seals for machines, equipment, oil and gas pipelines;
- Wood-polymer materials with protective and decorative coatings;
- Sound and heat insulation materials;
- Blends based on structural thermoplastics and thermoplastic elastomers;
- Temperature-resistant lubricants and cutting fluids;
- Packaging film materials for the protection of metal products, machine tools, equipment from corrosion;
- Filtering polymeric materials for purification of gases and liquids;
- Biomechanics and polymer implants for surgery;
- Biotechnology based on the use of polymeric materials;
- Mesomechanics of polymeric materials;
- Computer simulation of materials processing technologies;
- Research of electrophysical properties of polymers and composites.

Every year, work is carried out under 15-20 contracts with the CIS countries and far abroad countries (Russia, Ukraine, USA, France, the Republic of Korea, Switzerland, Poland, etc.) for the development and supply of scientific equipment, new materials and technologies.
