Moscow developers use a novel basalt fiber mesh created by Moscow Composite Cluster

A number of major Moscow developers, such as “Morton Group,” LSR Group” and “Donstroy” started to use rust-proof basalt fiber mesh at their new construction sites. A novel material is resistant to the aggressive environment and reduces the consumption of adhesives.

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).

Physical and mechanical properties of basalt fiber reinforcing mesh with polymeric alkali-resistant impregnation ensure increased durability of masonry and better thermal efficiency of external walls compared to other materials. Anti-corrosion properties of basalt mesh improve masonry resistance to aggressive environment and increase the lifespan of structures up to 100 years.

In addition to the improved performance characteristics, basalt mesh created by Moscow Composite Cluster provides the builders with economic benefits. This mesh allows the adhesives to be applied more thinly than established in the standards for conventional reinforcing meshes without loss of quality of the finished structure.

The use of basalt fiber reinforced composite materials in construction is not the only field Moscow Composite Cluster is interested in. It deals with projects aimed at the development of poly-composite tanks for compressed gas transporting, advanced road surfaces, composite insulation for pipelines and so on. MIC Composites Russia is developing a unique self-healing composite technology.
