Projekta īss kopsavilkums/ abstract:

The project MERF (Matrix Epoxy with Reduced Flammability) deals with the development of new more ecological and more environmentally friendly than so far used flame retardants. These newly developed substances will be based on cyclic or polymeric phosphazenes or on other usable derivatives of phosphorus oxytrichloride. The project should also contribute to deepening knowledge of the relationship between structure and properties.

The newly developed flame retardants will contain reactive groups (-NH, -OH, -COOH) enabling building-in into polymer network.

Project also count on the syntheses of nonreactive retardants with optimized structure compatible with used epoxy polymer matrix.

The project includes not only development but also pilot plant production of modified laminated epoxy resins. The analytical and other data and found out properties will be used for modelling of the polymer matrix behavior and finding the existing relationships between structure and properties.

Synpo, akciová společnost expects of MERF project strengthening the area of special products development with higher added value and following low-volume manufacturing. If the manufacturing will exceed SYNPOʼs equipment capacity possibilities the technology can be transferred to Spolchemie - SYNPOʼs owner. Spolchemie is company which holds a third place in Europe in the epoxy resin production. It is assumed that after establishing on the market the area of interest in possible applications will be expanded which will enable extending research capacities and possibilities of resulting cooperation in transnational research projects.

Topics and solving methods which are nowadays from a major part a subject of research activity of academic workplaces will be shifted to a level of industrial research and development so that after finishing the project it will be possible to industrially implement all abovementioned results and place them on the market efficiently.

The project is based on previous cooperation and experience of individual consortium members and each partner utilizes their specific skills:

SYNPO’s specialization lies in the development of epoxy matrixes and sythesis of some phosphorus flame retardants.

The Department of Physical Electronics of Masaryk University will focus on syntheses, isolation and characterization of various types of phosphazenes or possibly other suitable phosphorus molecules.

Kauno Technologijos Universitetas will deal with multiscale modeling of laminates and will carry out dissemination and expolitation of results.

The Institute for Mechanics of Materials of University of Latvia will deal with composites and measurement of their properties.

The Polymer Institute of Slovak Academy of Sciences will work on analyses of composite material and evaluation of flamability of these materials.
