How do you make an oven that can process thousands of degrees of heat? Geo-polymer cement fortified with basalt reinforcements! Oven made with basalt reinforcements This high temperature oven was built by Jonathan Hampton in Arizona. Jonathan has been making geo-polymers for years. [...]
Ultra high performance concretes with basalt fibers and basalt fabrics as the structure. Fabric forming with basalt will open up a whole new world of architecture. Amazing flexural modulus, astounding strength and durability and the ability to fashion very thin yet light and strong products [...]
1. Textile applications for fire protection Basalt does not melt nor shrink in the flame and, when not mechanically stressed, keeps its geometric integrity. When coming to heat resistance, Basalt is exceptionally suited to block fire. Basalt products resist the open flame. Basalt melts at [...]
Basalt rebars, basalt mesh, basalt chopped fibers and basalt rope twine, are stronger than steel and will never rust or corrode. Some stainless steel can be used in combination where needed if structural loads or shear factors are concerns. This goes for bridges and commercial [...]
Asphalt road overlays suffer from serious cracking under heavy traffic. Basalt fibers will extend the life of asphalt or concrete pavement while allowing for less material! So if a half an inch less asphalt can be applied while having a 30-50 percent better lifespan, it [...]
Diane Husson artist extraordinaire. Sculpting cement faux bois using basalt chopped fibers, basalt rebar and twine.
Concrete has never felt this good! Basalt chopped fibers are the new concrete countertop additive! Stronger and cheaper than AR Glass this is the fiber being chosen by the lead professionals in the business. They use less fibers and get even better strength! [...]
