Basalt frp reinforcement
Basalt fibre is a high performance non-metallic fibre made from basalt rock melted at high temperature
Basalt FRP Rebar is an outstanding product for concrete reinforcement. It weighs 4 times less than steel rebar and its tensile strength is 3 times higher. Basalt FRP rebars are manufactured from basalt fibres by pultrusion technology. The surface is profiled and sanded. This kind of surface treatment results in a better adhesion in concrete. Basalt FRP rebar has the same thermal coefficient of expansion as concrete.
Basalt does not rust or absorb water, so the depth of concrete cover can be reduced, allowing for thinner sections and more flexibility of design. Non–ferrous reinforcement Basalt FRP rebar is easily cut to length with regular tools. Basalt FRP rebar does not conduct electricity or induce fields when exposed to RF energy, great for MRI or data buildings. Basalt FRP rebar is perfect for Marine environments and Chemical plants where corrosion is a continuous concern.
Tensile strength – 1100 Mpa.
Basalt FRP composite Rebar is available in 4-30mm diameters.
Basalt reinforcing mesh
General purpose concrete reinforcing basalt frp mesh for the use in walls, precast panels, house slabs, driveway slabs. Manufactured from sand coated basalt frp bars.
Buying frp composite mesh can be costly, especially in larger quantities. We’re able to provide cost-effective reinforcing mesh prices to the civil, commercial, residential and DIY industries. Select from a range of basalt frp reinforcement mesh sizes below or we can customize sheet size and bar diameter to suit your specifications. Due to lightweight we are able to manufacture and handle extra large sheets.
Basalt frp reinforcing mesh is available in SL82, SL62, SL102 and SL122 or customized.
Basalt fibres for concrete
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.
- Common Dosage: 2-12kg per cube of concrete
- Tensile strength – 1100 Mpa
- Sustained Operating Temperature: 600ºC
- Minimum Operating Temperature: -260ºC
- Density: 2.75 g/cubic cm
Basalt Dowel Bar
Dowel Bars are used as a load transfer device between joints in concrete slabs. They provide a mechanical connection between slabs but allow for horizontal contraction and expansion of the slab itself. This results in lower deflections at the joints and reduced slab stresses. Joint failure is often the result of corrosion of the steel dowel bar.
Black Bar Basalt Dowels will not rust or corrode, meet shear capacity requirements and may reduce fatigue stresses in the surrounding concrete, due to the lower stiffness of the Basalt Dowels. These bars are also electromagnetically transparent and are frequently used in high-speed toll collection areas near inductance sensors.
Basalt geogrid mesh is made of basalt roving with epoxy impregnation. It is an effective and economically advantageous substitute to a traditional steel mesh due to its strength, low thermal conductivity and long-term retention of its qualities in aggressive environment, loads and temperature changes. Non–ferrous reinforcement mesh can also be used in construction of industrial and civil buildings in seismic regions.
Used for reinforcing of asphalt, concrete, pavements, precast products. The strength of basalt mesh is as good as metal reinforcement, however it is lighter, thereby simplifying transportation and handling in construction.
Beyond Materials Group is a growing manufacturer of non–ferrous basalt fibre materials and can meet your specification and quality requirements for a wide variety of custom applications. From our factory in Loganholme we ship our basalt products Australia wide.
