The concept of continuous basalt fiber manufacture and basalt based composites
When planning the production of CBF, the raw material base and the line of final composite products are selected, taking into account its prospects, profitability and demand in the market
Each stage of processing the initial raw materials (basalt rubble) increases the added value of the final product. The product of each preceding stage is the supplier of raw materials for the next stage.

Our company has developed several typical solutions for the creation of large-capacity production on the latest generation of technologies for the production of CBF and composite products, which leads to the fastest payback on the enterprise and return on investment.
Following standard solutions are designed to understand and evaluate the investment attractiveness of CBF production.
Optimal capacity in the production of products for the construction market
The required area to accommodate the Production
Discounted payback period of the enterprise
Number of jobs
Production of one of such typical enterprises is focused on the construction market: rebar, geotextiles (mesh/grid), structural and construction profile, cutting fiber, each local construction market has its own characteristics, for example, in a number of countries the entire volume of metal rebar is imported, which makes this enterprise attractive for investments. Due to the use of basalt-plastic reinforcement of smaller diameters compared to metal (in equal ratio), reducing the cost of transportation and installation (9 times lighter than stainless steel) savings of up to 20% can be achieved.The project for the construction of a plant with a capacity of 5,000 tons of continuous basalt fiber per year will produce final products in the form of construction materials, for example:
• Up to 43,000,000 rm of re-bars (Ø10mm), or• Up to 18,000,000 rm of construction profiles (50x50x5), or• Up to 6,500,000 m² of geogrids (100x100x3), or• Up to 5,000,000 m² of road mesh (200x200x8), or• Up to 5,500 ton of fabrics, or• Mixed products.

The concept of composite production
When planning Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (BFRP) Composite production, a line of technological equipment is selected for the production of products in demand on the market, which allows to reach the self-sufficiency of the enterprise in the shortest possible time.
Some sectoral applications of the basalt composite production
The basalt composite production can be used in the energy industry, for example at wind energy farms to make composite housings/towers and composite turbine blades/propellers, especially which are placed in the sea (offshore wind farms).
The basalt composite production can be used in nuclear/heat engineering to produce flameless/thermal resist building materials, fire prevention doors, materials with radioactive protection and containers for storing radioactive waste.
The basalt composite production can be used to produce concrete reinforcement fibers and composite armatures for underground, underwater constructions, port, marina and marine platform constructions, road asphalting works and road grids, intersecting railroad constructions, airport runway coverings.
