Basalt Fibers under heat Treatment

Amorphous, inorganic fibers are converted into crystalline fibers in this research project. The principle of this examination is that ceramic fibers can be generated out of amorphous basalt fibers.

The structure of basalt fibers is also the glass structure. The principle to create crystals in glass exists for several years in the production of glass ceramics. The crystal lattice is converted back to a crystalline structure, and the area of the thermal stability of the material is raised thereby.

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.
