The company showed its products to French experts

The Managers of the RT-Chemical Technologies and Composite Materials met with representatives of French Aerospace Industries Association (GIFAS). Representatives of Russian businesses and institutions discussed the possible prospects of development of cooperation with the European leaders of the high-tech industry.

One of the options for expanding cooperation would be manufacturing of the glass products at the holding's Obninsk facility, ONPP Tekhnologiya, to repair Airbus aircraft that is operated in Russia. Cooperation with the flagship company of the French aircraft industry is of considerable interest to the holding: it provides additional preferences for expansion into the European market. In addition, the more than 250 French airliners are only operated by domestic airlines.

"The next stage in the development of international partnerships could be cooperation in the supply of aggregates made of polymer composite materials and radioparent radomes to address the needs of European aircraft manufacturers" said Kirill Shubsky, CEO of the RT-Chemical Technologies and Composite Materials Holding

If the holding is accredited to Airbus standards, it could become an official supplier to the French corporation. Since 2013 the production of glass at ONPP Tekhnologiya has already reached compliance with the AS/EN-9100 international standards governing the production of items for the aerospace industry.

In the area of glass for aviation applications RT-Chemical Technologies and Composite Materials has provided GIFAS experts with unique nanoscale functional coatings that protect the crew from the heat and electromagnetic radiation. «We hope that the next stage in the development of international partnerships could be cooperation in the supply of aggregates of polymer composite materials and radioparent radomes to address the needs of European aircraft manufacturers», Kirill Shubsky, CEO of the RT-Chemical Technologies and Composite Materials Holding, said.

Specialists at the holding have developed thermal control system panels and frameworks for photo-voltaic arrays for a new generation of spacecraft with a high weight coefficient that can be used in the construction of satellites.

A number of developments, and in particular high-tech fluids consisting of organosilicon compounds that have no analogs anywhere else in the world, have also been presented in the field of chemistry. As Maxim Yukhatskov, Head of the Department of Aviation Projects at RT-Chemical Technologies and Composite Materials, explained, these products are distinguished by their wide operating temperature range (from -90 to +170 ˚С) and could serve as the basis for oils, lubricants and fluids for hydraulic systems in all types of aircraft and ground vehicles, where they could significantly increase performance.
