Rods made of a unidirectional composite of basalt fibers offer significant advantages over steel rebar in a variety of applications.
• Higher specific strength than steel rebar • 89% lighter in weight: one ton of basalt reinforcement rods provides the reinforcement of 9.6 tons of steel rebar
Resistant to corrosion and deterioration of natural elements • Resistant to alkali and acid • Same coefficient of thermal expansion as concrete • No permanent deformation when bent • Chemically inert, basalt rods are compatible with concretes having different Ph values
When used to reinforce concrete, basalt reinforcement rods are an advanced alternative to steel rebar.
Ideal for: • Hydraulic engineering • Highway reinforcement • Concrete building and facing slabs • Concrete barriers • Highlighting poles • Other structural components and applications.
Basalt reinforcement rods are also an alternative building and construction solution in regions prone to earthquake and seismic hazards.
