Roman Butusov, Krastsvetmet: “We want to make bushings with not less than 10 month life cycle”

The principal manufacturing engineer of Krasnoyarsk based (Russia) Krastsvetmet, Roman Butusov,  talked about benefits and prospects for the growth in production of platinum & rhodium alloy bushings when he met our correspondents during Composite-Expo 2018 in Moscow.

Do you think bushings with 200-400 holes offer insufficient performance?

Yes, if we want basalt to become a competitor of a glass, this is not enough. Currently, we are producing bushings with 400 holes as a standard product which is highly demanded by the customers. However, we are planning to launch production of 800 or 1200 hole bushings. The most ambitious goal is 4000 for basalt fiber, but this is the future.

Basalt fiber: from volcanic vent to modern composites

Basalt fiber is filling increasingly more application niches owing to its properties while forcing out sometimes less strong glass fiber,sometimes more expensive carbon fiber.
