Basalt Fibre (BF) Analysis

The objectives of future researches on basalt fibres can be focused in the determination of feasibility and practicality in the exploitation of basalt fibre in reinforced polymer composites as beneficial material alternative for applications in which at the moment only glass, carbon and aramid fibres have a real market.

No significant differences in stiffness and strength were found between basalt fabric reinforced polymer composites and glass composites reinforced by fabrics of similar weave patterns, and the performance of these materials were also assessed not so far from carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites.

What is really interesting in basalt fibre is that it combines ecological safety, natural longevity, good mechanical properties, and high level thermal characteristics. It is not a new material, but its applications are surely innovative in many industrial and economic fields, from building and construction to energy efficiency, from automotive to aeronautic and space, thanks to its good mechanical and chemical and thermal performances.
