Basalt fiber mesh is successfully used in masonry to reinforce large-format bricks, aerated concrete, foam blocks, etc. A special alkali-resistant polymer impregnation ensures perfect protection of the basalt fibers from aggressive media and gives the material excellent adhesion.
Areas of application: masonry, concrete floor, plaster.
The corrugated basalt fiber mini rods, as a particularly innovative concrete reinforcement made of basalt fiber reinforced plastic, are used as a replacement for the steel fiber. Since basalt fiber reinforcement does not corrode compared to steel reinforcement, the covering layers with concrete can be significantly reduced, which directly saves costs.
The basalt fiber mini rods are also used where steel fibers are particularly susceptible to moisture and rust due to strong temperature differences.
A concrete reinforced with basalt fiber mini bars have double service life compared with steel reinforcement.
Basalt fiber mini bars (BF-MB), like steel fiber, mainly reinforce industrial floors, foundation slabs and shotcrete applications.
The mini rods made of basalt fiber-plastic composite are 4 times lighter and have the same or higher tensile strength than steel. The basalt fiber mini rods are therefore a real alternative to steel fibers.
