Considerations on modifying basalt fabrics protecting against the thermal radiation

Due to very good thermal and mechanical properties characterizing basalt fibers and items made of them, this raw material is now more frequently used for the manufacturing various textile products.

Basalt fibers on the textile market are primarily used in articles, which are designed to protect against thermal factors. The paper discusses the possibility of applying selected coatings formed by physical –PVD  (Physical  Vapour  Deposition) or  chemical  CVD  (Chemical  Vapour  Deposition) deposition  of chemical  compounds  in  the  form  of  gaseous  phase  on  the  surface  of  basalt  fabrics  to  improve  their protective properties against very high temperatures affecting the clothing products.

Additive Construction using Basalt Regolith Fines

Planetary surfaces are often covered in regolith (crushed rock), whose geologic origin is largely basalt. The lunar surface is made of small-particulate regolith and areas of boulders located in the vicinity of craters. Regolith composition also varies with location, reflecting the local bedrock geology and the nature and efficiency of the micrometeorite-impact processes.
