Revolutionary fibre can replace glass & asbestos fibre

26
Apr '08
A revolutionary fibre has been developed by the name of basalt fibres. These fibres consist of a bundle of endless fibrils obtained by means of melt spinning of an organic mineral.

With demands for increasing the resistance on thermal, chemical and other technical products, these fibres display distinctiveness of strength, flexibility and are perfectly suitable for increasing the performance characteristics of technical products.

Technical textile products made from Basalt fibres can replace use of products made from glass and asbestos fibres because of their inherent strengths.

Glass fibres can be replaced in the manufacture of leno weave fabrics. Basalt fibres can also be used for reinforcing fabrics in composites, laminates and grinding wheels. Other uses include heat insulation compounds for heat resistant building materials.

One of the biggest benefactors can be Geotextiles for use in building of roads, concrete products and railway engineering. Last but not the least it can be used in flame resistant materials. Yarns made from basalt can be used extensively for manufacturing of cordage, hoses and webbing.

The biggest impact will be on the environmental and health advantage it will bring by replacing glass and asbestos. The risks are very low in production as well as disposal since it is 100% recyclable.
