Basalt Rock Fiber Abstract: BASALT Basalt is well known as a rock found in virtually every country round the

world. Basalt Rock fibres have no toxic reaction with air or water, are non-combustible and explosion proof. Basalt base composites can replace steel and known reinforced plastics (1 kg of basalt reinforces equals 9.6 kg of steel).

SCOPE Low cost, high performance fibres offer the potential to solve the largest problem in the cement and concrete industry, cracking and structural failure of concrete. BECAUSE OF THE HIGHER PERFORMANCE (STRENGTH, TEMPERATURE RANGE, AND DURABILITY) AND LOWER POTENTIAL COST PREDICTED FOR BASALT FIBERS, THEY HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO COST EFFECTIVELY REPLACE FIBERGLASS, STEEL FIBER, POLYPROPYLENE, POLYETHYLENE, POLYESTER, ARAMID AND CARBON FIBER PRODUCTS IN MANY APPLICATIONS.

ADVANTAGES OF BASALT ROCK FIBERS: 1. They have no toxic action with air & water. 2. Very high chemical resistance. 3. Basalt is the best reinforcement for concrete due to its tensile strength 4. Noise absorption qualities 5. Basalt based composites can efficiently replace steel and all known reinforced plastics. 7. Water absorption 8. Melting temperatures & Working temperatures up to 600C.
