Development of long-basalt-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic matrix composites

The dynamic mechanical properties of long-basalt-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites are more than twice improved compared to short-fiber materials. Researchers concluded that continuous basalt fibers are suitable for application in P-LFT technologies, and that long-fiber-reinforced composites have much better dynamic mechanical and shrinkage properties than short-fiber-reinforced materials.

Researchers will continue our research on the development of basalt and glass- fiber-reinforced, injection-molded composites, focusing mainly on the relationships among the processing parameters, fiber lengths, and mechanical properties (particularly temperature resistance and high-temperature behavior).
