Comparison of Basalt, Glass, and Carbon Fiber Composites using the High Pressure Resin Transfer Molding Process

Mafic basalt fabric was molded in HP RTM system with epoxy and its properties were compared to composites with glass and carbon fiber.

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).

Basalt fabric composites performed on the intermediate level between glass and carbon composites. Basalt fiber composite offers a direct increase in performance over glass fiber composite.
