Comparison of Basalt, Glass, and Carbon Fiber Composites using the High Pressure Resin Transfer Molding Process

Mafic basalt fabric was molded in HP RTM system with epoxy and its properties were compared to composites with glass and carbon fiber.

Basalt fabric composites performed on the intermediate level between glass and carbon composites. Basalt fiber composite offers a direct increase in performance over glass fiber composite.
