Resilience: The ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape – elasticity – and the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties – toughness. Composites materials can be very resilient and reparable in comparison to current choices of materials in constructions, building products, [...]
As read on www.prslprosoccer.com/the-stadiums/, LigaPro and Puerto Rico Soccer League plan to design and build football infrastructures throughout Puerto Rico to resist Cat 5 hurricanes and magnitude 7 earthquakes. The buildings will serve a dual purpose as shelters for the community in times of need. [...]
Here we go! This promises to be the banner year for basalt reinforcement products we have been working towards as more interest and more studies about basalt come in regularly. The results of much testing have proven the superior properties of basalt fibers for those [...]
Len Meserve in Bend Oregon made the sound decision to use basalt rebars in their new foundations project. An extensive job, Len reports they are delighted with the ease of use, assembly, cutting and installation of the basalt rebars. They also have pumice mixed into [...]
for every ton of Portland cement produced, one ton of carbon dioxide (CO2) is released into the atmosphere
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!
