Advanced basalt fibre in high-tech applications, JEC composites magazine, article No44 October 2008
More and more sectors are becoming interested in basalt fibres. The range of applications is diversifying, and includes some high-value-added ones. Russian company Kamenny Vek is one of the players in that market. In this article, it reviews the characteristics of basalt fibre and the innovative applications in which it is used.
Sizing is essential to basalt fiber manufacture and critical to several key fiber characteristics that determine both how fibers will handle during processing and how they perform as part of a composite. "Kamenny Vek" company has a wide range of various sizings for different applications.
This method applies to basalt single yarns, direct rovings, assembled rovings, twisted yarns and describes techniques of specimen preparation and their testing.
The test method is harmonized with ASTM D 3822 standard.
Due to the fact that basalt fiber is stiffer and more brittle than glass fiber, preparation of specimens for evaluation of mechanical properties should be more careful.
