The Application of Basalt Fiber in Building Materials
As a new building materials, mechanical properties﹑physical properties and chemical properties of basalt fibers are studied in the paper. Compared with other building materials, the basalt fibers have better tensile strength than the E-glass fibers, greater failure strain than the carbon fibers as well as good resistance to chemical environment, impact load and fire with less poisonous fumes. In addition, the basalt fibers do not contain any other additives in a single producing process, which makes additional advantage in cost. In addition, the applications of basalt fibers in building materials are emphatically elaborated.
