HOST: Now for the rescuers and nanotechnology. In
CORR.: About this assistance when equipped would not mind, perhaps, no one firefighter. But count on it ever could unless mannequins, and then only in special cases. In the capital’s premier university MISA, the new suit firefighters. Fashionable style, modern look and most importantly — comprehensive protection.
Vadim Tarasov, head. Department of Nonferrous Metals and Gold Technological University "MISA" Yes, the materials used for certain types of protections for biology, chemistry, and so on. But in the complex, in this case, so to speak, in our opinion, the first used to say, this stuff.
CORR.: The main feature of new items — a unique fabric. In ordinary cotton thread wove nanomaterial with high magnetic properties. Designed costumes field keeps a person in a constant tone.
This test is cold. The temperature in the chamber -60. Extreme cold cloth moves quietly, without breaking or showering, and then heat stroke — more than 600 degrees Celsius, and again nothing. The last stage — an open fire. Trial by Fire is one of the most serious. As the developers say, this fabric is able to withstand open flame temperature up to 900 degrees. Now these features we will try to experience personally with this is such a gas burner, however, the temperature it gives you much more, 1,500 degrees. The first seconds of the fabric does not react, but soon red hot. Her coat is melted, but the structure remains the same. And most importantly — the material does not fall off.
Eugene Gorelik, at the Department of Nonferrous Metals and Gold: The thin metal wire of a refractory metal — they faded and disappeared. The fabric was left all on the spot. That is, its structure is hardly changed.
CORR.: This means that, even once in a burning room, only the top layer of melted, leaving security in the lower, and thus the human skin. Compared with conventional fire suits, this durable to temperatures 5 times, and to a flame — 3 times. This is confirmed by the tests and the special tensile machine. Any fabric, sandwiched here would have been torn in the first seconds.
Love Dubynina, assistant professor of Nonferrous Metals and Gold: Even fire, hitting a difficult situation after the heated tissue, maybe he held back the hot walls and everything else, it comes out, and this tissue is not broken.
CORR.: Work on the suit has already been completed, are underway state tests. If successful, the first copies will go to the fire department this year. Meanwhile, developers are already thinking about how to reduce the cost of production. Now the price of one set — 24,000 rubles.
