Basalt fibers as reinforcement for composites

The presented data indicate that basalt has potential for replacing E-glass in several composites, especially when resistance to extreme conditions is required. However extra research may be needed e.g. on the adhesion with different resins.

Carrying out expert evaluations and updating business plans and feasibility studies of investment projects for the production of continuous basalt fiber, staple fiber and basalt composite products.
