Corrosion resistance of basalt fibers

This study describes an experimental investigation of basalt fiber, E-glass and cement-based composites resistance to various corrosive environments, including acid, salt and water solutions, and clarifies the corresponding degradation mechanisms.

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.

The researchers found that corrosion resistance of basalt fibers in sulfuric acid  is 4-5 times higher than that of E-glass. In addition, the beneficial characteristics of basalt fiber are said to include excellent corrosion resistance and high abrasion resistance.
