Development of polypropylene nonwoven "Sayd"

December, 2017

   JSC "VNIISV" has developed filtering polypropylene fibrous nonwoven "Sayd". The material is intended for purification of contaminated water from iron salts, mechanical impurities (sand, dirt), oils, fuel oil, etc. and for obtaining purified process water. A distinctive feature of the material is its hydrophility. This nonwoven passes contaminated water through itself by gravity, without use of pumping station. For practical usage the material is wound on a perforated cylinder or perforated mesh. It can be successfully used when washing cars, tractors and other machinery, when the waste water is forwarded to the sewer.
   The material is well welded, glued by most adhesives. It is resistant to alkalis and sulfuric acid (37%). Operating temperature is up to 80ͦ C. The Material has the following characteristics:
Width – up to 1800 mm.
Surface density – from 100 to 300 g/m2.
Thickness – from 1,5 to 10 mm.
Raw material – 100 % polypropylene.
Diameter of fibers in the material – 3-15 microns
   Available in the form of sheets 1400 X 1800 mm or in the form of rolls with a width of 1000 mm and a length of up to 30 m.

The 6th Forum «Polymers of Russia 2013»

On October 2nd, 2013

The 6th Forum «Polymers of Russia 2013» was heldon October 2nd, 2013 in Moscow. Thekey objectives of the Forum were: looking for new ways to develop the Russian polymeric branch and state stimulating the consumption of domestic polymeric materials.
The Adviser of Director General of OJSC "VNIISV" Viktor I. Kernitsky also took part in sessions of the 6th Forum «Polymers of Russia 2013».
18 w1t1.jpgV.I. Kernitsky gave a report and made a presentation on the theme “Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) - continuous development of technologies, diversification of fields of applications and new trends”.
In the report V.I. Kernitsky analyzed a current state, basic trends and development prospects of production of one of the most widespread polymers - polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which global output has already exceeded 64 million tons. There were also considered some issues of potential use of alternative (renewable) raw materials for PET and new fields of PET application. In a final part of the report the problem ofPET resinfor food packaging in Russia was shortly mentioned.
Russian PET resin applied in containers for various drinks is successfully exported to Europe and can have a new development. Constant perfection of technologies, raw-material base development reduces the cost of PET manufacture and allows it to be more competitive in variety of areas in relation to other polymers.


11th International aerospace salon MAKS


The 11th Internationalaerospacesalon MAKS-2013 took place from August 27th to September 1st in Zhukovsky, Moscow region.The SalonMAKS is one of the largest Russian exhibitions showingthe achievements ofaerospace industry. The Salon makc2.jpgMAKS allows to trace tendencies of science and technology development and to expose potential of the Russian companies not only in the field of aircraft, but also in allied industries. Each two years the Russian and foreign experts are given an opportunity to discuss prospectsmakc1.jpg of international cooperationand show innovative products.

Carbon Fibres R&D Workshop in Buffalo, New York, USA

On July 25-26th, 2013

On July 25-26th, 2013 the group of specialists of OJSC “VNIISV’, headed by the Director General Baydakov Boris Vladimirovich, visited Carbon Fibres R&D Workshop, hosted by the company “Harper International” in Buffalo (NY, USA).The American company “Harper International” is a leading manufacturer of custom engineered thermal systems and the equipment for processing carbon fibres.
IMG_011212.jpgThe main objective of visiting the workshop was acquaintance with the global achievements and new technologies in the field of production of carbon fibres on the base of various raw materials as well as acquaintance with the displayed samples ofIMG_00801.jpg ovens and furnaces made by “Harper Int.”. The workshop program was very informative. On the agenda there were scientists’ and experts’ reports on the following topics: carbon fibres and composites R&D, trends and prospects of high-modulus carbon fibers industry, new approaches to mass application of polymeric composite materials, etc.
On the first day of the workshop there also took place an informal meeting of representatives of OJSC “VNIISV” with the management and technical experts of  “Harper Int.”, led by the President Charles Miller. At the meeting personal acquaintance of the heads of both companies came off, whereupon some questions on the further mutually advantageous cooperation were discussed in details.
The second day of the workshop was devoted to a display tour, during which the customized laboratory equipment for processing PAN precursors and production-scale graphitization furnaces of “Harper Int.” were visually presented to participants.
The technical sessions organized by “Harper Int.” went off rather fruitfully.The specialists of OJSC “VNIISV”studied the issues and opportunities of the world CFC industry.

Journalists of TV channel "Russia-1. Tver" have visited OJSC “VNIISV”

On June 28th, 2013 the camera crew of the program "News-Tver", attracted by publications in mass-media about the unique properties of yarns produced by VNIISV, visited the Institute. The journalists were particularly interested in yarns of medical purpose and products for "Goznak."
gurnal.jpgOJSC “VNIISV” produces 20,000 kilometers of medical yarns per year. The products feature the widest range of types and special properties. The yarns "Tveran", "Nikant" and "Ftorest" are applied by surgeons all over Russia. A particular pride of “VNIISV” is a biologically active yarn with antibiotics and wound healing effects. It greatly reduces the amount and severity of suppurative complications after surgical intervention. This yarn is particularly valuable in insanitary conditions (emergency situations, military operations).
The yarn is delivered both on bobbins and in a special hermetic sterilized packing of “VNIISV” in-house development. For 20 years there have been create several packing machines having no analogues in the world. The latest model is fully automated, it puts and seals the yarn in two packages that should be opened directly on the surgical table, without preliminary preparation and sterilization. The external package provides general airtightness of the system, the internal package allows holding and unwinding the yarn as needed during surgical operations. Surgeons like such a big 3-metres length of the yarn in a package.
Our partners produce non-traumatic needles with already inserted yarn. Deliveries of bobbins with a winding up to one kilometer are possible for big customers and processers.
Another division of the Institute produces fibers ensuring protection of Russian rubles. Composition and structure of the fiber are modified every five years.
The reportage, shot during the visit of journalists, was shown in the newscast "News-Tver" on July 3rd, 2013, and attracted attention of townspeople.
