Ultimate and service load behaviors of panels reinforced with basalt-fiber-reinforced polymer (BFRP) and carbon-fiber-reinforced-polymer (CFRP) grid are discussed in this paper.
Theoretical and practical study carried out by Russia-located Kamenny Vek proves that basalt is a promising material for CNG cylinders.
Basalt plays an important role in 3D-printing surface habitat on the Moon and Mars where it is abundant and easily accessible within the regolith.
This work concerns the production of glass-basalt hybrid fiber reinforced composite with and without different micro fillers like graphite and Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
Hybrid composites provide combination of properties such as tensile modulus, compressive strength and impact strength which cannot be realized in composite materials.
The influence of the cooling rate on the crystallization is investigated for the Cyclic butylene terephthalate (CBT) material after polymerization to thermoplastic polybutyleneterephthalate (PBT).
Continuous basalt fiber is more efficient and eco-friendly than most glass & carbon fibers.
The participants of the Basalt Composite Challenge are to come with an idea of composite products that can be produced under factory conditions.
