Sinochem and Shanghai Chemical Institute jointly set up a laboratory dedicated to composite materials

Sinochem International and Shanghai Research Institute of Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. (Shanghai Chemical Institute) jointly established the “Sinochem – Shanghai Chemical Institute Composite Materials joint laboratory” in Shanghai Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park.

This is another important measure of Sinochem International’s layout in the new materials industry, according to Sinochem International. The two sides will use this joint laboratory as a platform for comprehensive cooperation in the field of high-performance composites R&D, and jointly promote the development of advanced composite materials technology in China.

Zhai Jinguo, deputy general manager and vice president of Shanghai Chemical Institute, said:

“It is of great significance to establish a joint laboratory of composite materials with Sinochem International. The two sides will jointly promote technology development, results transformation and industrial application in related fields such as carbon fiber and solidified resins. We also will explore the collaborative innovation model of the technology joint research of a scientific research institute and an industrial group.”

At present, the joint laboratory’s first R&D project – on spray paint – free carbon fiber composite materials – has been officially launched. The product will be used first in new energy vehicles, not only to reduce the weight of the body, but also to significantly reduce the application cost of composite materials and improve production efficiency.

In the future, the joint laboratory will also develop a variety of high-performance lightweight composite products and technologies, serving the automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery and other industries.
