Materials made from Basalt Fibres

Basalt fabricsBasalt fabricsBASALT CONTINUOUS FIBER (BCF) is a raw material for manufacturing of various types of BCF-based materials and articles.
BCF possess high compatibility with other materials, such as: metals, plastic, glues and fibre during producing process. These advantages give possibility to create a lot of combined materials.

Composites made from basalt continuous fiber with carbon fiber are particularly noteworthy. Volumetric reinforcement of concrete, asphalt, building structures with use of chopped basalt fibres also has wide perspectives.  Properties of basalt fiber are close to the properties of carbon fiber, thus basalt fiber is perspective material for substituting costly carbon fiber in the manufacture of combined carbon-basalt composite materials.

It is well known that basalt based continuous fiber has sufficiently high strength characteristics, thermal resistance stability and chemical durability to impacts of water, salts, alkalis and acids. (More information pls. see BASALT CONTINUOUS FIBER BASIC CHARACTERISTICS and ADVANTAGES). Due to its properties Basalt Continuous Fiber has wide application in Construction, Road and Earthquake-Proof construction and other branches of Industries.

  • Basalt chopped fiber used as reinforcing materials for asphaltic-concrete road pavements, highways and take-off runways;
  • BCF roving used in the manufacturing of corrosion-and- chemical resistant basalt-plastic rebar, sectional shapes , rods, tubes, pipes and other composites which possess durability exceeding the strength of stainless steel in 2,5 times.
  • BCF used in the producing of incombustible and fireproof composite materials for nuclear power plants and thermal stations, oil-refining and chemical plants; firewalls in high-rise buildings and other industrial facilities, where spreading fire is not permissible; in the production of anti-wear and chemical resistant coating, Filters for waste water at sewage water treatment plants; filters for cleaning of waste gases from dust and industrial drains. See article Filters
  • As Heat isolating and reinforcing materials for Motor-car construction. See article Application of basalt fiber in Motor-car construction

A range of materials that can be produced from BCF is enough various. The basis for their manufacturing is primary BCF materials: BCF roving, BCF chopped fiber, BCF twisted thread.

Reinforcing meshes BFN-5, BFN-10 used for reinforcement of plastering covering at the building construction, use as reinforcing material of abrasive disks for cutting metal; GBF-25W road geo-meshes for road building.

Structural fabrics made from BCF roving for producing composite and electro insulation materials, high durability products; Fabrics made from BCF yarn for manufacturing of printed-circuit boards for electronic industry.

Bandaging tapes are used for strengthening buildings and structures; preventing the formation and development of buildings' cracks, for increasing their seismic strength.

ChoppedStrandmats are used in the production of Composites.

Board. Suspended ceilings. TBF platesBoard. Suspended ceilings. TBF platesHeat-insulating slabs (with density of 60 – 180 kg/m3) are produced from basalt thin fibres and based on NS 1 inorganic binder.

Application: Fire protection and insulation in civil engineering (insulation of walls, ceilings, roofs, facade heat insulation); thermo-insulation of thermal equipment, heating and hardening furnaces, heating mains, etc.



Super-thin basalt fiber feltSuper-thin basalt fiber felt Super-thin basalt fiber (STBF) is a layer of staple fibres of 1 - 3 microns in diameter, tangled and bound with each other taking the form of a felt. This is high quality’s basalt wool felt. Sound and heat-insulating materials: mats, needled mats, needle-punched mats, cardboard, soft and rigid slabs are manufactured on the basis of STBF.


Advantages of super-thin basalt fibres:

  1. Basalt fiber is made exclusively from basalts without admixtures of other minerals.
  2. Basalt fiber materials have good thermal-insulating properties.
  3. Material is non-combustible, has a high heat resistance. Continuous temperature is up to + 600 °C. Temperature of Low single (short-term) application – up to 1000 °C.
  4. They possess a high chemical resistance to water, to effect of salt solutions, of acid and alkaline mediums; and have long operation life.
  5. High sound-insulating properties and vibration resistance.
  6. STBF materials are made without using the binding agent or on inorganic binders.
  7. STBF materials do not release toxic substances due to heating or exposing to an open flame.
  8. Low hygroscopicity; it is in 8 times lower than that of glass fibres.
  9. High operation life even in humid environments.

Basalt scaleBasalt scaleBasalt scale (BS) is a thin laminar material with 2 - 6 μm, and surface area of 0.5 – 4.5 mm². The term BS was taken due to the material has the analogous protective functions like fish scale.

BS is a unique material for production of protective, wear-resistant, anti-corrosion, and chemical-resistant coatings, reinforced composite materials, reinforced plastics, fillers for friction materials (brake pads, clutch plates)

Wear-resistance and chemical durability of lacquer coatings reinforced by basalt scale will increase in a few times.  Strength properties of plastics reinforced by basalt scales will increase in 2-3 times. Basalt scale combined with inorganic binders allows creating incombustible heat-resistant coatings with operating temperatures up to 700 °С. Coatings with content of BS are applied by spraying that provides high-performance of the equipment.
