The largest event in the Ukrainian road industry, the 17th International Forum for design, construction and use of motor roads and bridges AvtodorEXPO 2019 was held in Kiev.
Technobasalt-Invest LLC participated in the trade fair and business programme. Basalt fiber products which aroused considerable interest were presented at the company’s booth.
Technobasalt is well-known as a world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality continuous basalt fibers and basalt fiber based products. They supply basalt roving, basalt fiber and basalt composite rebars to over 15 European countries, to the Middle East, the USA, Canada, China etc.
It is a pleasure to note the fact that the number of skilled professionals and future specialists in this field who are interested in the innovations offered by domestic enterprises is growing every year.
Our company, in its turn, was pleased to share the theoretical knowledge and experience of the practical application of basalt products in road construction, the benefits and perspectives that result from the proper design and use of the latest basalt materials,
says the spokesperson.
Technobasalt-Invest LLC took part in the International Scientific-Practical Conference “Modern materials and technologies for construction and repair of highways”.
The following benefits of basalt fiber applied for the road construction were unfold in the reports presented by E.P.

EUROISOL Geosynthetics also showcased basalt fiber products on its stand. Asphaltex BASALT and Dualtex BASALT exhibited biaxial reinforcing synthetic materials based on basalt mesh produced by Makhina-TST (Belarus) from high-modulus basalt fiber impregnated with bitumen and used to reinforce asphalt concrete layers.
The 17th International Forum for design, construction and use of motor roads and bridges AvtodorEXPO 2019 hit the five-year record in the number of participants and exhibition space. 90 companies from 8 countries that represented over 150 brands in 32 product categories exhibited in the trade fair.
Perhaps, the interest to the trade fair was stimulated by a statement made in April 2019 by the Ministry of Regional Development of Ukraine on updating construction standards regarding road construction. In particular, amendments to more extensive use of geosynthetics in Ukraine.
