Basalt Roving

Basalt roving is a bundle of continuous monodirectional complex basalt fibers. Roving possesses high natural strength, resistance to aggressive environments, long service life, and excellent electric insulating properties. By its technical characteristics, Basalt roving surpasses S-glass and E-glass by many parameters and is almost as good as carbon. Basalt roving is extremely heat resistant: long-use temperature range is -260°С до +680°С. Temporarily it can work in up to 1000°С.

Basalt roving is a multifunctional material that can be used in different composites and applications.

It is a bundle of continuous monodirectional complex basalt fibers that are made from a natural volcanic basalt rock as raw material. Roving possesses high natural strength, resistance to aggressive environments, long service life, and excellent electric insulating properties. Cause of its technical characteristics basalt roving can be used in various industries like marine, automotive, mechanical engineering, aircraft, technical textiles, etc. It is also used in manufacturing different products such as plaster mesh, basalt rebar for concrete reinforcement, geogrids, high-pressure vessels, basalt fabrics, furniture, and others.

Technical benefits of basalt roving provide use it in spheres that require specific conditions. Basalt roving is extremely heat resistant: long-use temperature range is -260°С to +680°С. Temporarily it can work in up to 1000°С. It is perfect for the aggressive environment with a high-level of temperature, sea salt, or large load capacities. Basalt roving has zero catenaries that is one of the main advantages. Another is that roving doesn’t require any preparation for use.
