One of the most common market segments for basalt fiber is infrastructure, where alkali resistance, stiffness, strength and overall cost/performance ratio are highly desired. However, basalt fiber is a good reinforcement option in a variety of applications. Companies should consider basalt fiber in the following scenarios:

  • When designing a part that needs additional lightweighting or design freedom
  • To add strength, stiffness or cost saving (compared to carbon fiber), on its own or with another fiber
  • In high-temperature applications
  • For differentiation
