Arab basalt fiber company is the first facility of its kind in the arab world
The company produces Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar for concrete tensile purposes which is a non-rusting alternative to steel rebar.
We produce Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar that is widely recognized around the world as (BFRP Rebar). This rebar is reinforcing material produced naturally from lava rocks such as basalt, gabbro and diorite, where rocks are melted at high temperatures to produce Basalt Fiber. Through the a pultrusion process, the fibers are folded, rolled and treated with polymer to produce environmentally friendly reinforcing bar.
The results show that: Compared with glass fiber, carbon fiber and aramid fiber, basalt fiber has good mechanical properties, acid and alkali resistance, excellent properties, high wave permeability, non-conductive, excellent sound insulation and insulation performance.
Basalt fibers have specific ranges of use due to its properties. Since basalt fibers are characterized by chemical and thermal stability, this material can be used in areas where the use of other materials is ineffective. For example, basalt fibers can be used in the production of geotextiles, reinforcing materials, high-temperature filters, materials for the automotive industry, reinforcing meshes, and other materials.
The Arab Basalt Fiber Company is located in the Emirate of Fujairah, in the United Arab Emirates.
This work was carried out by the Arab Mining Company – Fujairah to produce basalt fiber rebar for several considerations, the most important of which is that this industry is a new and innovative global industry, as basalt reinforcing bar is manufactured in construction work as an alternative to steel rebar.
BFRP Rebar has distinctive and unique properties that are superior to those of steel rebar. It should be noted here that the project site was chosen in the Emirate of Fujairah due to the study of the project from its various aspects in cooperation represented in the port of Fujairah, electricity, water and gas, given the availability of raw materials needed for production and the availability of infrastructure.
Because the use of basalt fiber is wide and can suit different industries,
the main focus of the Arab Basalt Fiber Company will be the production of basalt fiber rebar for reinforcement during the early stages, and will expand to manufacture other basalt fiber products in the future.
Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar offer a stainless alternative to steel reinforcement, and can extend the life cycle of all types of buildings and concrete infrastructures.
We believe that Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar is the best green alternative to steel rebar. In a world that needs sustainability now more than ever, it does not make sense to reinforce concrete with steel, especially in places exposed to water and humidity.
