Roman Dzhioev, Ir Basalt: “People will buy our products”

Roman Jioev, General Director of Ir Basalt LLC offered insights on the progress in implementation and prospects for the development of the first continuous basalt fiber plant in the Republic of South Ossetia.

Why did you choose basalt and continuous basalt fiber (CBF)? After all, South Ossetia is rich not only in this raw material.

It is really so, we have a rich raw material base. After the conflict in 2008 (war conflict with Georgia) we had to restore the industry of South Ossetia, and we received a lot of proposals. Among them, we had an offer to set up a basalt fiber manufacturing facility. At that time I worked in the government so I started to study the issue, interact with companies behind these proposals.

I worked closely on this issue and after discussions, studying the product, I came to the conclusion that it is interesting. We have a lot of basalt deposits. And if there are raw materials, why not to start a fiber manufacturing facility?

On basalt materials application as protective means for weapons, military and special equipment

Based on the tests, basalt woven materials show similar results to aramid and hybrid ones but the monolayer costs 9-10 times less compared to the aramid also basalt fabric offers better fire and thermal resistance. Calculations and experimental data lead to the conclusion that basalt materials application for the protection of ground, naval and air equipment is promising.
