A Review on Properties of Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites

This article presents an overview on material properties such as mechanical properties under static and dynamic loading, tribological properties and thermal properties of basalt fiber reinforced polymer composites.

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).

Recent days natural fibers are increasingly projected as an alternative to traditional synthetic fibers (glass and carbon fiber) which has an adverse effect on the environment.

Among the various natural fibers (plant, animal, mineral etc.) basalt fibers have extensively used in various fields of engineering and a lot of research activities has been carried out to study the material properties of basalt fibers by reinforcing it with polymer matrix materials.

Basalt fibers are mineral fiber with mechanical properties near or above glass fibers and low cost when compared to carbon fibers. There is a need for research on composite materials which is indeed helpful in solving the problems of society/ industrial sector.
