Due to very good thermal and mechanical properties characterizing basalt fibers and items made of them, this raw material is now more frequently used for the manufacturing various textile products.
Basalt fibers on the textile market are primarily used in articles, which are designed to protect against thermal factors. The paper discusses the possibility of applying selected coatings formed by physical –PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) or chemical CVD (Chemical Vapour Deposition) deposition of chemical compounds in the form of gaseous phase on the surface of basalt fabrics to improve their protective properties against very high temperatures affecting the clothing products.
