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.

Factors affecting the properties of composites made by 4D printing

3D printing is the process where layers of materials are deposited to make structures of complex geometries. 4D printing is a process that combines 3D printing with the application of some activating agent in order to change the shape of the manufactured part after the process, e.g. the flat structure will change its shape to take up the desired complicated shape such as “curved” or “S” shaped.
