Study on the Performance of Woven Basalt Filament Diaphragm Fabric


Article Preview

The tensile properties of basalt filament were measured and compared with these of E-glass fiber. The plain basalt filament fabric (PBFF), twill basalt filament fabric (TBFF) and plain glass filament fabric (PGFF) that woven by the CSW-03 loom under the same fabric density were used to make diaphragm preforms. Thermoplastic acrylic resin was chosen to coat on the diaphragm preforms using Werner Mathis AG LTF97885 coating machine when the coating thickness is 0.1mm, curing time is 30min. Tensile test was carried out on the diaphragm performs and coating diaphragm by 3380Instron advanced testing machine. Effect of curing temperature (<200°C) on tensile properties of diaphragm materials was investigated. The coating PBFF and the coating TBFF were compared to analysis the effect of organization structures on the elastic modulus. The results indicated that the best elastic modulus of diaphragm materials was achieved when the curing temperature was 120°C. PBFF is more suitable for diaphragm materials than PGFF and TBFF. The proposed curing temperature for making diaphragm with different elastic modulus ranges from 100°C to 140°C.
