Metaclay Begins Manufacturing Nanomaterials

Metaclay, a business based in Karachev, Bryansk Oblast, Russia, has launched the first production in Russia of nanosilicates and polymer nanocomposites incorporating those nanosilicates. The products are used as additives and fillers in the oil-and-gas, cable, packaging, and automobile industries. Total investment in the project is 1.9 billion rubles. Of that sum, Rusnano, Moscow, Russia, will cofinance 1.1 billion rubles. Governor of Bryansk Oblast Nikolai Denin, Rusnano CEO Anatoly Chubais, and Metaclay General Director Sergey Shtepa took part in ceremonies for the factory’s commissioning.

Initially, the new factory will produce 14,860 t/a of polymer nanocomposites. In 2014, when the manufacturing facility reaches design capacity, nanosilicate production will rise to 25,000 t and polymer nanocomposites, to 50,000 t. Sales are expected to exceed five billion rubles per year of which 80 percent will be in polymer nanocomposites, materials made of a flexible base (matrix) and a nanofiller, an organo-modified silicate (montmorillonite) with particles ranging from 10 nanometers to 200 nanometers.
