Increase in demand of basalt fibers from various application industries

Comprised of single-ingredient raw material melt, basalt fibers are superior to other fibers in terms of thermal stability, heat and sound insulation properties, vibration resistance and durability. Basalt fibers and composites have potential advantages for application in construction, compared with conventional structural and the other fiber materials. The fields of applications of basalt fiber products are extremely broad, depending on the specific properties of the fiber, including automotive, sporting goods, boat building, wind turbine blades, and civil engineering. In wind turbine blade and boat-building applications, basalt rovings are used to produce woven, and multiaxial fabrics. Here, the high corrosion resistance and high mechanical properties of basalt play the main role. So there is increase in demand of basalt fibers depending upon the specific need and requirement.
