Thermal Shock Cycling Effect on Flexural Properties of Phenolic Based Composites Reinforced By Basalt and Carbon Fibers

In order to evaluate the changes in the flexural properties of three types polymer-matrix composites (phenolic resin reinforced with woven basalt and carbon fibers at a total volume fraction of approximately 35%) affected by transient thermal conditions, mechanical tests were performed to specimens, which have previously been subjected to a certain number of thermal shock cycles.

Basalt fiber bar: Reinforcement of concrete structures

This paper is review of state of art of knowledge of basalt fiber, the production methods and review of tests on basalt fiber as a strengthening material for concrete structures. There are several types of basalt fiber strengthening meth odds used to strengthen concrete. In this paper three types are mentioned: External strengthening, fiber matrixes, and rod type material.

Study of the influence of basalt fiber on the processes of structure formation and properties of the composite cation-exchangable based on them

Scientific and technological progress is closely linked to the development of the chemical industry in the country. The creation of new polymer composites, inexpensive cost and with high exploitation properties that are not inferior to foreign analogues, and in some cases exceeding them, is one of the priority directions of economic development of the country.
