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.

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.
