Basalt Reinforced Plastics: Some Operating Properties


Article Preview

Results of the investigation of composite materials of new type, based on basalt fiber and polyester resin, are presented, in particular, a long-term resistance of the material in corrosive media: in caustic soda as well as in sulphuric and nitric acids of 1% concentration has been estimated. The service life of given composite is recommended in above-mentioned media.
