Basalt fiber alkali resistance and methods to increase it

In this paper, destruction mechanism for basalt fiber in cement concrete is described and a variety of methods to protect it from alkali-corrosion are analyzed.

The use of basalt fiber for disperse concrete reinforcement is a very promising direction in the concrete technology. However, the constraint for mass introduction of this material is a low resistance of basalt fibers to the products of cement hydration.
