Investigation of Basalt Woven Fabrics for Military Applications

This report investigates the use of basalt fibers in a composite along with SC-15 epoxy resin for ballistic protection. Basalt fibers are not known as a ballistic material, but rather as a structural one. Even though basalt fibers are not expected to outperform some of the higher ballistic-performing materials such as aramid and polyethylene fibers, because of their lower manufacturing ...
