What is used to produce continuous basalt fiber (CBF)

The article deals with the methodology for determining the suitability of basalt rocks for continuous basalt fiber production (CBF), and also basalt rock deposits in Russia and worldwide.

Necessary rock studies of the gabbro and andesite basalt groups for the suitability as the raw material base for the production of continuous basalt fiber (CBF). A unique technique including laboratory melting and pilot-industrial melting at the high-tech equipment.

The future viability of CBF doesn’t only lie in the partial replacement of fiberglass as the main material for composite production from the market, but also in the combinations of glass, basalt and carbon fibers according to the constructive and economic reasons.
