Isomatex has completed works on Vulcano One, the first drone entirely made of basalt composite material based on enriched basalt fiber Filava™. The prototype was developed with the participation of Ant-Arctic-Lab, a partner of Isomatex.
The main challenge for drone designers is to find perfect materials that would combine high resistance, lightweight, recyclability, not to say vibration absorption and non-conductivity. Filava™ reinforced composites offer all the required properties, Isomatex assures.
Several crash tests reveal the high impact resistance of Filava™ fibers resulting in reducing the number of layers needed in the composite product. In addition, products made of basalt composite based on Filava™ fibers are entirely recyclable that means zero wastes and no environmental pollution.
The enthusiasts of eco-friendly solutions rely heavily on Filava™ basalt fiber. Thus, Italy-based start-up GS4C srl developed and patented FML composite made of Isomatex’s fiber. The market analysts included Isomatex in the list of leading players on the global basalt fiber market.
