Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Yuri Borisov visited the plant for the production of carbon fiber "Alabuga-Fiber" in SEZ "Alabuga" and held a meeting on the topic of import substitution of composite materials in civil aircraft and other industries.

During the meeting chaired by Yuri Borisov in SEZ "Alabuga", issues of import substitution of composite materials for civil aircraft and other industries were discussed.

Alexander Tyunin noted that "the introduction of new capacities will allow meet the needs of the Russian market in medium-strength, high-strength, high-modulus carbon fiber and consolidate the independence of the Russian Federation in the field of composite materials, as well as successfully compete in international markets with products that are not inferior in quality and price to foreign counterparts."
At present, "Alabuga-Fiber" produces carbon fibers (HC) of various denominations from 3K (3000 elementary fibers in a bundle) to 50K with strength up to 4.9 GPa and modulus of elasticity up to 260 GPa.

The event was also attended by the President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Oleg Bocharov, First Deputy Chairman of the Board of the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation Andrey Yelchaninov, First Deputy General Director of "Irkut" Corporation, General Director of "AeroComposite" Anatoly Gaidansky; General Director of "ONPP Technology, A.G.
