Basalt fiber testing and evaluation

The objective is assessment of the usability of continuous basalt fibers as the reinforcement of injection molded thermoplastic composites.

Our department has already done successful efforts to produce such composites using short basalt fibers made by a specialmelt spinning technology in Hungary. Several different commercial products have been created using this material, mostly replacing glassfiber reinforced compounds. These fibers have relatively moderate mechanical properties, but they are very cheap, which makes them remunerative even if they are applied in greater proportion than the glass fibers.
