Manufacturing and mechanical characterization of Basalt Fibre Reinforced Bio-polymer composites

Manufacturing and mechanical characterization of Basalt Fibre Reinforced Bio-polymer composites

Nowadays, there is a growing interest for the use and development of materials synthesized from renewable sources in the polymer composites manufacturing industry; this applies for both matrix and reinforcement components. In the present investigation, a basalt fibre reinforced (BFR) bio-based epoxy system together with a cork core is proposed for its use in composite sandwich structures.
