Sinochem-Shanghai Chemical Industry Institute Composites Laboratory Unveiled China Composite Materials Development Speed

Sinochem International and Shanghai Chemical Industry Research Institute Co., Ltd. jointly established the “Sinochem-Shanghai Chemical Industry Composite Materials Joint Laboratory” today at the Sinochem International Science and Technology Innovation Center in Shanghai Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park. This is another important measure for Sinochem International to deploy new materials industry. The two sides will use this as a platform to jointly promote the development of China’s advanced composite materials technology.

Shanghai, April 26, 2019 /PR Newswire / — Sinochem International (600500.SH) and Shanghai Chemical Industry Research Institute Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Shanghai Chemical Industry Institute”) jointly established “Sinochem-Shanghai Chemical Industry Complex” The Joint Lab was held today at the Sinochem International Science and Technology Innovation Center in Shanghai’s Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park. This is another important measure for Sinochem International to deploy new materials industry. The two parties will use this as a platform to cooperate in the field of high-performance composite materials research and development to jointly promote the development of China’s advanced composite materials technology.

Dr. Chen Baoshu, Chief Technology Officer of Sinochem International, Chen Xinmin, General Manager of Sinochem International R&D Management Department, Deputy General Manager of Shanghai Chemical Industry Institute, Vice President Zhai Jinguo, Assistant General Manager of Shanghai Chemical Industry Institute and Dr. Luo Yong, Minister of Science and Technology Development attended the unveiling ceremony.

Advanced composite materials have the characteristics of light weight, high strength, etc., and have obvious advantages in terms of specific strength, fatigue resistance and designability. They can be widely used in automotive, aerospace and other industries. The market prospect is broad and is the key development of “Made in China 2025”. Break through the field. The “13th Five-Year” National Science and Technology Innovation Plan proposes to use carbon fiber and its composite materials as major projects for technological innovation.

Dr. Chen Baoshu said at the opening ceremony: “The completion of the joint laboratory is another important milestone for Sinochem International to carry out technological innovation in the field of new materials. Advanced composite materials are the focus of high-tech strategic materials research and development, in line with the strategic development of Sinochem International. Direction. Sinochem International will use this as an opportunity to expand cooperation with the Shanghai Chemical Industry Institute to create a mature platform for all-round cooperation in project selection, industrialization and joint declaration of major projects.”

Zhai Jinguo, deputy general manager and vice president of Shanghai Chemical Industry Institute, said: “The establishment of a joint laboratory for composite materials with Sinochem International is of great significance. The two sides will jointly promote technology development, transformation of results and industrial applications in carbon fiber and its curing resins. Explore the collaborative innovation model of joint research and research institutes and industrialization groups. Shanghai Chemical Industry Institute will give full play to its technical resources and advantages, and cooperate with Sinochem International to promote the industrialization and marketization of high-performance composite materials related technologies and products. “”

At present, the joint research and development project of the joint laboratory — the spray-free carbon fiber composite material research and development project has been officially launched. The spray-free resin system is applied to continuous fiber composites with excellent sprayability. The finished composite parts can achieve 0-level paint adhesion without any mechanical treatment, and can replace traditional polyester and ring. Thermosetting resins such as oxygen resins and polyurethanes are used in composite materials. The product will be first applied to new energy vehicles, which not only reduces the weight of the vehicle, but also significantly reduces the application cost of composite materials and improves production efficiency.

In the future, the joint laboratory will also develop various high-performance lightweight composite materials and technologies for the automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery and other industries.
