SETC Sets Guidelines for China's Building Materials Industry

02 November 2002

State Economic and Trade Commission (SETC) poses new guidelines for the development of building materials industry in the near future, specifically including the commercialization of fiberglass products.

1. Dry-cement and bulk-cement making companies should focus on technology improvement to develop production lines with daily output reaching 2,000 or more tons, and to establish new dry predissociation kiln production line. Dry-processing cement lines with daily output exceeding 4000 tons are encouraged. Grog base should be built in the area which are rich in limestone. Modern cement grinding factories should be built near the cement markets. And bulk cement and commercial concrete mixing stations should be developed.

2. About new wall materials, the State encourages the development of concrete block lines with an annual output over 50,000 cubic meters per shift. Bubble-filled concrete block lines with annual output of 100,000 to 200,000 cubic meters should be developed. Sinter product lines with annual output of 15 million blocks, board material of both weight bearing and decorative and light-weight board line with an annual output over 150,000 square meters should be developed.

3. Develop the commercialization of wide fiberglass products and their use in transportation, electronic, energy and construction fields. Develop biological, medical and industrial filtration materials based on fiberglass to meet the demand for biological purification and industrial dust elimination. Develop various fiberglass products of high performance and multifunction. Develop fiberglass textile material. Develop the reinforced steel-substituting fiberglass which can be used as anti-corrosion materials in sea and wet salty air. Develop multi-axial knitted basketworks for vessel manufacturing and the production of blades of wind-driven generators.

4. Regarding non-metallic mines, government encourages to build large mineral processing bases and develop high value-added products in order to take part in the international competition. Develop material ultra-thin processing, purification, surface processing technologies. Develop plumbago high-purity micro powder, low-sulfur and expandable plumbago, liquid plumbago, plumbago absorbing materials, stuffing materials of pencil stone, calcium carbonate and kaolin, environmental protection materials made up of clay and the non-metallic nanometer materials.
