Light as a feather-strong as a rock!

Basalt is rock! Volcanic rock super heated and fibers are pulled through platinum bushings that allow the threads to be put on bobbins that then get woven into our fabrics. Way cleaner than fiberglass from the start. Better on the factory workers and being from volcanos a pure product from mother earth.
Amazingly light yet super strong, Basalt is being used for making products like skis have more bounce, snowboards and skateboards and skimboards take a beating and yet hold up much better when made with basalt fibers.
Brake pads, high heat and extreme cold pipes and sleeve and belts and tubing. All way more affordable than carbon fiber and it takes impact much better than carbon and fiberglass!

About Nick

Nick Gencarelle

Working with concrete and steel 5-6 days a week at least for over 25 years gave me an innate understanding for the properties and use of these materials. Having worked on everything possible from rebuilding old homes in New England to hospitals in Alaska, union work on the Pipeline, commercial jobs from Hawaii to Arizona and Florida, I have seen it all.

My motivation when seeing people lose their homes to fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, etc. is the knowledge that by building correctly many of these homes, and lives and pets can be spared or at least hopefully be able to return to a structure still standing. Thousands of homes are destroyed each year. New standards are in place to help alleviate some of that by doing things like installing better windows or hurricane ties. These however are to me just band-aids on the greater problem of building correctly in the first place. Concrete homes can be built today with designs and new reinforcements that can withstand the elements.
