Basalt Rebar

Basalt rebar is a bar with continuous spiral ribbing formed by means of winding by basalt strip oiled in highly durable polymeric compound. Basalt rebar is a perspective composite material with a wide range of application in construction. The rebars are resistant to corrosion and aggressive chemical compounds, is extremely light and durable.

Research results have shown that long life of constructions where basalt rebars were used considerably exceeds the life of similar constructions where other materials were used. Basalt rebar is a perspective composite material that can be used as an alternative to steel or carbon rebars.

Generally, it is a bar with continuous spiral ribbing formed by means of winding by basalt strip oiled in the highly durable polymeric compound. It also has a wide range of applications in construction.

Basalt rebar is an amazing product for concrete reinforcement. Its technical characteristics prove it. Its weight is less than steel rebar and the level of strength is at the same time perceptibly higher. Besides, basalt rebar has the same thermal expansion coefficient as concrete. That prevents concrete cracking and extends the term of using helping in manufacturing high-quality building products like driveways, different structures, etc. For this reason it is profitable to use basalt rebar reinforcement in concrete. Research results have shown that the long life of constructions where basalt rebars were used considerably exceeds the life of similar constructions where other materials were used. It also fits for the marine environment and chemical plants where corrosion is a continuous concern.
