Considerations on modifying basalt fabrics protecting against the thermal radiation

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.

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 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.
