The Chinese University and the Belarusian State University discuss the possibility of the joint venture creation

01 December 2006

Zhejiang Oceanographic University (China) representatives suggested the creation of a joint venture for the manufacturing of rust converter together with the Belarusian State University as Tatsiana Dik, head of the BSU Research & Development Department, reported to a BelTA correspondent.

Rust converter “Superanticor” is developed by the Research Institute for Physical Chemical Problems of the Belarusian State University. The product is aimed at corrosion-damaged  steel surfaces  treatment and protection of the structures before painting. It is equivalent to rust converters produced by the leading foreign manufacturers but differs from them by its ability to rub off the rust and to form a layer protecting from further corrosion development and keeping the paint laid firm. Moreover the product does not demand washing-off what is of great advantage when dealing with solid structures and its price is 5-10 times lower in comparison with foreign substitutes.

Rust converter “Superanticor” was presented at Shanghai International Industry Fair 2006 held in early November. The Chinese are planning to use the product for onshore facilities and fishing vessels protection.

According to Tatsiana Dik, the BSU is looking into the most advantageous terms of participation in the project for the Belarusian party that will be further presented to the Chinese colleagues.
