New Progress in R & D of Basalt Fibres and BFRP in Infrastructure Engineering

The research and application of basalt fibers and the FRP composites (BFRP) have been received much more attention in different engineering fields, especially in civil & environmental engineering and automobile industry, due to its excellent mechanical and chemical properties and high cost performance.

Necessary rock studies of the gabbro and andesite basalt groups for the suitability as the raw material base for the production of continuous basalt fiber (CBF). A unique technique including laboratory melting and pilot-industrial melting at the high-tech equipment.

This paper reviews the new progress in research and application of basalt fibers and BFRP in infrastructure engineering. Moreover, some new research directions and future application developments on basalt fibers and BFRP are also discussed in the paper.
