SHERAply…The pleasure of indoor living
Russian company LLC «Inorganic materials» patented technology for the production of sheet non-combustible material, which has high water resistance, the necessary flexibility, strength and environmental friendliness.
In high temperature fire conditions, even elements that many believe can be ignited can often be ignited. «non-flammable». Therefore, many manufacturers of building materials and representatives of the manufacturing industry are actively involved in the development of maximum refractory elements from which products for everyday use can be created. First of all, this applies to furniture and decorative elements..
Previously, materials scientists and chemists have proposed various non-combustible options, but they contain hazardous binders or lose strength when exposed to water..
The new development provides for the production of material from layers of reinforcing fabric (1-2 mm) from basalt or fiberglass. To make a sheet composite, its layers are impregnated with an aqueous suspension of a mixture of aluminoborophosphate, metakaolin, magnesite and polyethylene polyamine, followed by drying at a temperature of 20-25 °C and pressing at 110-130 °C. Minimum number of layers – 5, and the thickness can exceed 100mm.
The material can be used as furniture panels, for external and internal cladding of buildings, for the manufacture of hulls of small ships, and also used in the automotive industry..
Recently, Russian scientists have also begun to synthesize new ultra-strong and wear-resistant materials that will become an inexpensive replacement for diamond..
