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.

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).

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.
