Basalt Fiber - Engineering Fibers

Basalt Fiber

Basalt fiber is similar to carbon fiber and fiberglass, but basalt has better mechanical properties than fiberglass and is lower in cost than carbon fiber. It is used as a fireproof textile in the aerospace and automotive industries and can also be used as a composite to produce a wide range of products.

Basalt fibers have better mechanical and physical properties than glass fibers, their main advantages being: fire resistance, good resistance to chemically active environments, vibration and acoustic insulation capacity.

The basalt fiber is a new material which is widely applied in military and civilian area, such as aerospace, architecture, chemical industry, medicine, electronics, agriculture. It is known as the new material of the twenty-first Century.

  • Additional Information
  • Applications

Basalt fiber can be used in construction. Many building materials can be produced of Basalt fiber. Basalt reinforcement for constructions and roads is effective way to achieve excellent results due to high mechanical properties and good chemical resistance of basalt fiber. High thermal stability and high acoustic and thermal insulation properties: basalt fiber is widely used in adiabatic insulation because of its low thermal conductivity, large working range and good seismic performance.

Short cut basalt fiber is made from chopped continuous basalt fiber. This product can effectively enhance the impact resistance, wear- resistance, temperature shrinkage and freeze thaw resistance of concrete and mortar. It can be applied to cement concrete in roads, bridges, airport runways, dams and other projects.

  • Basalt fiber is made by the pultrusion of volcanic rocks, melted in blast furnaces. The fiber is drawn, as opposed to extrusion.This process makes it possible to create a continuous fiber, reinforced with a polymer.
  • Basalt fiber has better physical and mechanical properties.
  • Masonry Works And Plaster
  • Basalt fiber is environment friendly.
  • Good tensile strength.
  • Resistant to UV, chemicals and remains sterile.
  • Excellent impact resistance.
  • Excellent thermal and acoustic insulation.
