The Russian composite materials market has great growth potential. Thanks to the systematic work of the state and business, since 2013 the volume of domestic production has increased by 315% to 73.5 billion rubles. This is one of the highest rates in the world. Composite materials still have the most important positive characteristics of mechanical strength, lightness and insulation functions. Based on this, they open the way to more sustainable industrial use in all types of transport, construction, energy, electrical solutions, etc.

The 15th edition of Composite-Expo exhibition organized by Mir-Expo Exhibition Company was held on March 28 - 30, 2023 at Expocentre Fairgrounds, Moscow, Russia. The exhibition is traditionally an annual meeting place for Russian and foreign specialists from various industries, manufacturers, suppliers and consumers of composite materials, technologies and equipment for the production of products, a place to summarize the development over the past year and discuss prospects, as well as a source of new information, without which further progress would be difficult.

During the exhibition, the specialists held many negotiations with potential customers, established new business contacts and discussed new projects with representatives of various industries. It is worth noting that the effectiveness of specialized exhibitions is growing every year.

In 2023, in terms of the number of occupied areas, the Composite Expo exhibition increased by 30% compared to last year and occupied more than 7000 sq.m. The exhibition was visited by about 6,000 specialists from various industries. The exhibition was attended by more than 110 key Russian and foreign manufacturers of raw materials and equipment for the production of composites from Russia, the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Moldova, Turkey, China, the UAE and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

A number of exhibitors presented new technologies and product samples::

The company VIST COMPOSITE having been working at the market of ancillary materials, equipment and tools for the production of products used in all segments of the composite industry for more than 10 years, presented at its stand new 3-layer combined product: COMBIVAC180-1 multilayer system consisting of polyamide peel ply, PEP release film and breather. This product has been developed for autoclave vacuum molding technology, saves time and facilitates operation of vacuum materials. COMBIPEEL90-1 is a multilayer system consisting of a knitted mesh for distribution of resin, a perforated release film permeable to the resin and gases, and peel ply, which can be used in resin infusion process. The system saves applying time, and since the product is degreased and shrunk, there is no risk of pollution. The adhesive used to assemble this product is neutral: soluble with resins and does not affect the resin flow.

At the Composite-Expo Sealing Materials Plant LLC presented a wide range of Abris sealing materials and develops technologies based on them. The Abris series of sealing materials has more than 800 products. Finished products of the plant are produced in the form of tapes, panels, parts, cords, briquettes and mastics. Abris sealants are plastic, have hydro-, vapor-, vibro-, noise-, gas-insulating and radiation-protective properties, protect against corrosion, heat loss, from mold and microorganisms, from electromagnetic radiation, provide radon protection. Abris materials have a chemically resistant base, do not break down under the action of concentrated alkalis, weak acids, sea water, sharp temperature fluctuations, have a wide temperature range of operation, biological resistance, stable adhesion to metal, reliability in operation, high processability, environmental safety.

Carbontex is an advanced research and production enterprise of Russia in the field of design and manufacturing of volumetrically reinforced full-woven preforms by 3D-weaving technology of carbon/glass fiber, which are used for production of polymer composite materials in aircraft engineering, aerospace, petrochemistry, medicine and construction. The company presented the following products at the exhibition: 3D fabric CMF - volumetrically reinforced three-dimensional fabric manufactured by 3D weaving technology provides full three-dimensional reinforcement of the composite, which is not subject to stratification and interlayer shear; 3D weaving technology also makes it possible to produce three-dimensional 3D CMWF performs; The CM-P carbon plate based on the 3D reinforcement fabric provides even distribution of force loads, which makes the composite durable and wear-resistant; Quadcopter bodies made of polymer composite material (PCM) are lightweight, durable in operation and have increased rigidity; Composite half rings for the Ilizarov apparatus are lightweight components with elasticity, radiopacity and chemical resistance.

Moldavizolit Factory CJSC specializing in production of electrical insulating, structural and antifriction materials, present at the stand the following products: flexible film materials, impregnated and varnished paper, fiberglass, cotton fabrics, impregnating varnishes, microwave dielectrics, copper-clad materials for PCB, honeycomb structures.


Permanent participant of the Composite-Expo exhibition - P-D Tatneft-Alabuga Fiberglass LLC is one of the largest manufacturers of continuous fiberglass and products based on it: roving, mats, fibreglass mesh, roving fabric, chopped fiberglass, twisted yarns being used in all industries: the construction industry, road construction infrastructure, electrical engineering, automotive and transport engineering, housing and communal services, oil and gas production, defense industry.

The novelty of the production of POLY-SM LLC is a polymer tightening of the interframe space, which is designed to replace the traditional reinforced concrete tightening. The polymer tightening tests were carried out according to three parameters and showed that it can withstand 9 tons for compression, 900 kg for rupture. As for the bending tests, it was not possible to break the sample, it was loaded before the first signs of material destruction appeared. The polymer lattice system can withstand up to 1 ton – this is significantly higher than that of a traditional reinforced concrete tightening. In addition to the tests on the three named parameters, POLY-SM LLC also conducted a test for flammability. In underground mining, especially in coal mines, this is a fundamental point: only non-combustible or non-combustible materials can be used here.


Siberian Analytical Systems LLC is a Russian company specializing in the direct sales of analytical instruments, equipment for the study of the composition of substances, control of technology and final products, high-performance sample preparation systems, projecting and construction of turnkey laboratories. Besides supporting equipment our company performs engineering services and complex solution of different analytical tasks. The company presented at the show the spectral systems: ICP-MS and ICP-OES spectrometers, atomic absorption spectrometers, X-ray spectrometers and diffractometers, FTIR and UV/Vis spectrometers, as well as sample preparation systems including its own manufactured ones.
