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.

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).

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.
