Scientific and Production Association "Volcano" conducts a large-scale modernization. "This year, it invested € 2 million"- Said General Director of the NGO Andrey Zhuravlev.
In 2011, the company purchased 18 devices for winding roving elementary, which were made by special order in Germany. In addition, set Line-Splicing zhgutovalnyh machines.
Due to this NGO has been able to produce roving density from 400 to 7200 tex. Roving is a bundle of strands of continuous basalt fiber is used for the production of basalt fabrics, mats, as well as directly for the production of basalt products.
This year, the Research and Production Association also completed the first phase of laboratory equipment. A unique set of Perm Krai breaking machine that tests the strength of products.
"To carry out its laboratory tests turn to us by scientists from various research institutes and universities Perm and other Russian cities", — Said Andrey Zhuravlev.
In the production of continuous basalt fiber used nanotechnology. Such fibers are made from mesh, needled, fabrics are used in the composite products for different purposes in the automotive, aerospace, petrochemical industry, in the construction. Made of basalt fiber plastic fittings. Products from it 4 times stronger than steel, do not corrode. They can work in environments where you can not use fiberglass and metal (eg, pavement, facing the waterfront, waterworks, etc.).
Modular approach allows the production of the company to increase production in comparison with other Russian producers of 3-5 at a much lower energy consumption. Everything in the world has 6 such enterprises: in Russia, China and Ukraine.
Scientific and Production Association "Volcano" was founded in 2007. Production is located in the city of Perm Krai Osa. Is engaged in production of continuous basalt fiber and its products. Products NGOs "Volcano" is export-oriented. Its supply to Japan, Hong Kong, Kazakhstan, Germany, Austria and other countries.
From an article in 2007:
The company is now in the Osa is the only one in Russia, which is working on modern technology. The modular principle allows production to increase production in comparison with other Russian producers of 3-5 at a much lower energy consumption. In a world of only 9 of these enterprises. In addition to Russia are engaged in the production of basalt fiber in the Ukraine and China.
Continuous basalt fiber is manufactured using nanotechnology. Of finished product produced needlepunched material mesh fabric used in the composite products for different purposes in the automotive, aerospace, petrochemical industry, and in construction. Made of basalt fiber, plastic fittings, the products of which is 4 times stronger than steel and does not corrode. They can operate in environments where it is impossible to use glass fiber and metal.
