The Ukrainian Sawmill Company in Korosten, Zhytomyr region, conducted a series of tests of various fibers for concrete reinforcing before conducting construction work, at the request of the head office. In the end, a test in an independent laboratory confirmed that the basalt fiber is the fiber which can cope with the tasks set by the company :
– remove micro cracks on the concrete surface;
– increase the concrete strength and the ability to withstand heavy loads when moving wood-laden transports;
– guarantee resistance to abrasion;
– guarantee resistance to temperature difference;
– improve durability.
After all, the sites, roads, industrial floors in the workshops, with a total area of 230,000 m², were reinforced with basalt fiber.
