About the industry

The modern world market of man-made fibers is about 20 million tons per year. And, although the share of enterprises producing continuous basalt fiber (CBF) and its products in this market is still extremely low (about 15 thousand tons per year), the prospects for their application are very wide.

Application of materials

Technological solutions with the use of basalt are relevant for the construction industry, aviation and automotive industry, energy and electronics industry, petrochemical and metallurgical industry, cryogenic and medical spheres.
