INCOTELOGY is presenting a new range of coated basalt fibre fabrics, which, as a result of superior mechanical, chemical and thermal properties, can substitute glass and carbon fibre in many composites applications. INCOTELOGY offers a selection of coating materials, including aluminium, chromium, copper and silver. Basalt fibre fabric is ideal for applications requiring temperature resistance, insulation, and fire protection. Basalt fibres can withstand temperatures up to 750°C. Specific coatings on plain or twill basalt fabrics can enable the properties of basalt fibre to be optimised for each application. The aluminium-coated basalt fabric, for example, was developed for applications such as decorative surfaces for desks, kitchens or displays etc.
