1985 – 1986

Graphite-reinforced caprolon output started

6 May 1989

Minister order was endorsed for production of the mineral fertilizers in USSR regarding conversion of Gubakha chemical enterprise in Gubakha production union “Methanol”

28 January 1991

In the state register of the USSR trade marks officially registered the trade mark and Metafrax logo. In the new name encrypted names of the main types of the products produced by the company: methanol, formaldehyde, amins, UF-resins

For the first time in Russia mastered the production of the stabilized hexamine. Implemented in production the process of the resin UG-MT15 using wasteless technology. Organized production of the low toxic resin UF-P-Е1


One of the most difficult in the enterprise history. Methanol production было was stopped because of products sales absence.
