Last week I was very excited to read about the following use of basalt in Hawaii... The Hawaii County Department of Research and Development has laid the groundwork for three slabs of concrete that will act as prototypes for a sidewalk made of what is [...]
Much higher tensile strength than steel or fiberglass rebar of the same diameter: BCR is well over twice as strong in tension to prevent concrete cracking as grade 60 steel! 2. Strength + Zero rusting allows for thinner, lighter panels and decks: Since BCR does not rust or absorb water, the thickness of concrete cover can be reduced. This allows for thinner concrete sections, resulting in savings of materials and cost.
Flower beds made by Monolithic Domes using Basalt mesh and rebars! Concrete savings make up the price difference of steel rebars and the walls last and last!
Fischer Skis – Basalite Technology – the lightness of skiing. June 15, 2010: The next generation: volcanic basalt fibres reduce the weight and enable perfect flex characteristics in all temperature ranges. Watch the video....
Pioneer Electronics is using a revolutionary new Basalt cone in speaker systems-makes sense that the vibrations of the earth resound well!
Minimal Tornado Damage at Faith Chapel On May 1, 2011, David South, president of Monolithic, contacted the administrators at Faith Chapel Christian Center (FCCC) in Birmingham, Alabama. Since the April 28 tornado ripped through their area, killing at least 65 people and destroying just about [...]
Basalt twine rope is a flexible rebar rope that in tension and compression of concrete becomes like a quarter inch rebar. We took our basic basalt threads (basalt roving) and braided it to make pencil thick twine, over a thousand feet long on a bobbin [...]
SCULPTORS USE BASALT FIBERS AND MESH! I have recently heard back from sculptors who are using our Basalt mesh and fibers in their art and have expressed their delight at how strong the pieces are now and how well the products work! They want more! [...]
Almost anything can be made with Basalt that is presently being made with Carbon Fiber for less than half the price! We add fibers to architectural and structural wall panels, precast concrete parking structures, countertops, statues, art projects, anything concrete that needs strength at affordable [...]
