The autoclave located in the laboratory is used for forming various products from composites during scientific research. Equipped with an automated control system for molding parameters, which allows you to specify both standard and custom hardening cycles. The maximum dimensions - diameter up to 500 mm, length up to 1200 mm; Molding pressure - up to 8 atmospheres, in addition there is a pump for vacuum molding, the maximum temperature is up to 200 degrees.
The thermal imager makes it possible to determine the temperature distribution in structures with an accuracy of up to 0.1 degrees during molding, repair and restoration works, determination of heat loss of buildings, structures, technological equipment, and plotting temperature fields. It allows to estimate the value of heat fluxes during various processes associated with heat generation.
Tearing machine is used for a wide range of test specimens of materials and structures, equipped with devices for test laminates in compression, shear, torsion (maximum force reaches 10 tons). The output of the test data is made in digital form with their subsequent preservation and processing on a PC.
RLC meter - used to measure the electrical characteristics of a polymer binder during its curing
An electric dilatometer for determining the coefficient of linear thermal expansion of a material, Koper for determining the impact strength of a composite.
The laser projection system (LAP-laser of green color) is used to indicate the boundaries of materials, templates, tooling for cutting, orientation on the plane, painting, basing. Control is carried out with the help of special software installed on the PC. The maximum distance to the projection plane is up to 6 m, the number of simultaneously projected contours is twelve.
Hardness testers for determination of hardness of metals and non-metals by Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers, Shore. Used to determine the hardness of elements of metal-composite compounds after heat treatment. Also in the presence of thickness gauges of polymer coatings deposited on metals and non-metals. The accuracy of the thickness measurement is up to 0.01.
