Polotsk-Steklovolokno JSC announced readiness to resume the production of basalt fiber and basalt fiber based products.

  • chopped basalt fiber;
  • staple basalt fiber;
  • basalt fabrics;
  • basalt filaments;
  • basalt mesh;
  • basalt roving (direct, assembled).

In 2015 the company commissioned a basalt fiber manufacturing line, but later it was converted for the silica fiber manufacturing.

Nevertheless, basalt-fiber based products are proved to be in high demand on the market, filling a niche due to specific properties: chemical, corrosion resistance and durability.

The construction industry evinced a particular interest in the basalt fiber. The analytical reports claim the construction and infrastructure are expected to be the main end-users markets with 35% market share in the period until 2025.

This project has raised about $ 500 K, this said the capacity of the new continuous basalt fiber facility will be 500 tons / year.

This is a small percent if you look at the total production volume, which is 57 thousand tons / year. It is more important to have an opportunity to expand our product ranges. For example, we have already produced 40 different basalt-fiber based product ranges,

says Roman Bliznev, the chief engineer of Polotsk-Steklovoloko JSC to BelTA newspaper.
