Basalt plastic rods
Basalt plastic rods (from 6 mm in diameter) are resistant to corrosion, easy-to-install, transport and move on the site due to light weight. Basalt rods are produced from basalt roving using polymer binder then supplied in coils that can be chopped into desired lengths. It is used as flexible ties or dowels in construction, as a reinforcing material for meshes, brickwork and concrete (including cellular and porous), a scaffolding system for plants and greenhouse frames in agriculture.
Basalt plastic rebar
Basalt plastic rebar is produced from basalt roving impregnated with a thermosetting polymer binder and shaped into a 6-20 mm diameter rod. The surface is profiled with twisted basalt yarn to better adhesion in concrete.
Sanded basalt plastic rebar
It is sanded with a mixture of quartz sand of various fractions. Sanded rebar is used when adhesion characteristics are extremely important. This type of rebar increases adhesion to concrete by almost 50%.
Basalt mini-reinforcement is made of a strand impregnated with a polymer binder. If its diameter is 0.65 mm, it can be chopped into pieces of various lengths and used to reinforce concrete mixtures, increasing their strength and resistance to corrosion.
Basalt plastic rebar:
• tensile strength exceeds steel rebar by 2.5-3 times
• weight is 4 times less than that of steel rebar (affects the cost of reinforced structures, transportation and installation)
• magnetic and radio transparent
• resistant to corrosion and chemicals (salts, acids, alkalis)
• cold joints are not formed
• the coefficient of thermal expansion is comparable with concrete
• wear resistant
