JEC World, a major global composite event, is held in the Nord Villepinte in Paris. Last year over 40 thousand visitors took part in the trade show enjoying a chance to watch 1300 expositions.
Basalt Projects GC has first showcased its products at the collective stand of Russian Federation’s official delegation, which was organized by Russian Export Center JSC (JSC REC).
The trade show attendees will get an understanding of the composite profiles manufacturer, Kompozitor, (part of the Group of Companies), and RedArmo’s products.
• basalt fiber to reinforce dry building mixes;
• basalt composite rebar and mini reinforcement to reinforce concrete mixes;
• basalt composite building meshes to reinforce horizontal layers of mortars.
Kompozitor is specialized in innovative continuous basalt fiber-based building materials produced by pultrusion, uses local, mined in Russia, raw materials and operates in-house developed machinery.
Currently, the enterprise is undergoing a large-scale reconstruction that is supposed to lead to the 8-fold increase of technological capacities and expansion of up-to-date product range.
The strength of basalt products is comparable to those made of steel, but basalt products are 4 times more lightweight. Low thermal conductivity, resistance to aggressive environments, extreme climatic conditions, ultraviolet and corrosion impact ensure a long service life and increased interest of construction designers working in various industries.
Basalt fiber is sustainable so it can be positioned as a “green” construction material of the future. This year, a project of enriched basalt fiber-based yacht Loop650 was shortlisted for JEC Innovation Award in Sustainability section.
