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.

The main activity of Global Basalt Engineering LLC is creation of effective productions on release of continuous basalt fiber (СBF) with technologies of the last generation and composites on the basis of СBF (Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites as BFRP).
