Chopped basalt fibre
BlackBar™ Basalt fibre, is made by chopping continuous basalt fibre into short lengths. Basalt fibre used as reinforcing agent for concrete, plaster and plastics, providing three-dimensional strengthening. Basalt fibre provides high adhesion to concrete without deterioration of the reinforcing properties over time. It is a corrosion resistant material that does not get inflamed even exposed to open fire. Basalt Chopped Fibres can be mixed directly into polymers and concrete to increase tensile strength and reduce cracking and shrinkage.
