THE MATERIAL FOR THE 2lst CENTURY
Basalt is well known as a rock found in virtually every country round the
world. Its main use is a crushed rock in construction, industrial and high way
engineering. However, it is not commonly know that basalt can be used in
manufacturing and made into fine, superfine and ultra fine fibres. Comprised
of single-ingredient raw materials melt basalt fibres are superiors to other fibres
in terms of thermal stability, heat and sound insulation properties, vibration
resistance and durability.
Basalt continuous fibres offer prospect of a completely new range of composite
materials and products.
Basalt have no toxic reaction with air or water, are non-combustible and
explosion proof. When in contact with other chemicals they produce no
chemical reactions that may damage health or the environment. Basalt can
replace almost all applications of asbestos and has three times its heat insulating
properties. Basalt base composites can replace steel and known reinforced
plastics (1 kg of basalt reinforce equals 9,6 kg of steel). The life of basalt pipes,
designed for variety of applications is at least 50 years without maintenance or
electric or technical protection.
Basalt fibres together with carbon or ceramic fibres as well as various metals
is the most advanced and exiting area of application, as they can develop new
hybrid composite materials and technologies.
Basalt special properties reduces the cost of products whilst improving their
performance. More than hundreds specific unique manufacturing techniques
using basalt fiber materials and products have been developed and patented in
