For Concrete Reinforcement
Arab Basalt Fiber Company
Offering a Non-Rusting Alternative to Steel Rebar that extends the life cycle of all concrete infrastructures.
The first of its kind in the region, and the second largest in the world in terms of production capacity.
Basalt Fiber Ribers BFR are very useful for concrete because they add strength and durability and reduce shrinkage, and they are also non-rusting and do not corrode over time. These benefits enhance the life of concrete and increase the effectiveness of construction.
ARAB BASALT FIBER COMPANY
Arab Basalt Fiber Company is a complete integrated production facility for Basalt Fiber Reinforcement Polymer Rebar (BFRP Rebar), located in the Emirate of Fujairah – United Arab Emirates.
Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar (BFRP Rebar) provides a non-rusting reinforcing Rebar, and is a new technology with significant promise for the construction industry. As you will see in the video explaining how this product is made, basalt rocks are melted at temperatures between 1400 and 1600 degrees Celsius. The raw material is then formed into textile fibers. Therefore, fibers go through a pultrusion process and ultimately become strong reinforcement bar that can be used for a variety of concrete reinforcement projects.
The durability of concrete is increased by the use of Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar, as it enhances the tensile strength of the concrete. It is also resistant to corrosion.
Basalt fibers will not react with any of the componentsof concrete, and have a very high chemical resistance. Compared to other fibers such as S-glass, carbon, or aramids used in concrete, they are also considered to be inexpensive .
Basalt fiber is an environmentally friendly high-tech product. It is widely used in military and civilian fields.
Fibers From Basalt Rock
The fiber rebar is made from the basalt rock which is a type of rock formed by volcanic activity, the fiber rebar is harmless and eco-friendly. The fiber rebar is now used in construction projects, and it is available in different lengths and thicknesses. It is also used as an insulator, support, and reinforcement material.
It was in 1984 when the first commercial continuous basalt fiber (CBF) operations were established as a factory located near Kiev, Ukraine. Thereafter the technology was declassified and released to the world after being one of the top kept military secrets.
bfrP Rebar Benefits
The Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar can be used in many different applications and can be used in areas where there is an extreme amount of exposure to water, including bridges, dams, and canals. The BFRP Rebar is also suitable for use in other environments where there is a high risk of corrosion, such as refineries, chemical plants, power stations, and other industrial facilities.
The Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar is a natural fiber-reinforced concrete material. It is made from basalt, which is a naturally occurring volcanic rock. It is a very strong, durable, and environmentally friendly material. The basalt fibers in the BFRP Rebar are extremely strong and help to add strength to the concrete.
Basalt Fiber production
CBF – A Continuous Basalt Fiber production facility with a capacity of:
The first of its kind in the region, and the second largest in the world, UAE local manufacturing, producing world-class CBF composites a material with zero harm to the environment, and using the latest generation technology.
Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar with varying diameters ranging from 4mm to 32mm
Our rebar is widely used for structural applications in both private and Public projects. Our rebar is made from premium quality high tensile strength basalt fiber that is heat treated to produce superior quality rebars. Our wide range of basalt fiber rebar is available in various lengths and diameters as per your project requirements.
Characteristics of basalt fiber
The results show that: compared with glass fiber, carbon fiber, and aramid fiber, basalt fiber has good mechanical properties, acid-alkali resistance, excellent electrical properties, high wave permeability, non-conductive, and excellent sound insulation and insulation performance. Basalt fiber has specific ranges of use due to its properties. As basalt fiber is characterized by chemical and thermal stability, this material can be used in all projects.
For example, basalt fiber can be used in the production of geotextiles, reinforcing materials, high-temperature filters, materials for the automobile industry, reinforcing nets, composite materials, for reinforcing concrete building structures and road asphaltic-concrete pavements and for producing waterproof
Application of basalt fiber
As the use of Basalt Fiber is wide and can fit different industries, the main focus of our production facility is CBF rebar; composite materials for reinforcing concrete building structures.
The Basalt fiber composite rebar can significantly prolong the corrosive environment of concrete structural life, as compared with conventional reinforced concrete structure has excellent mechanical, physical, and chemical properties.
That’s why the production focuses on composite materials for reinforcing concrete building structures at first.
