BASTECH Rebar – Ideal for Today’s Construction Environment

Basalt is igneous rock formed from the rapid cooling of basaltic lava exposed at or very near the surface of the earth’s crust. Basalt fibers are created by heading the basalt rock to approximately 1,400°C and extruding them into a continuous fiber, which is produced in a single process needing no alterations or elemental additives. The process consists only of melting ingenious rock containing a specific mineral content found in a few specific areas. Basalt Fiber, unlike Glass Fiber, is a one component fiber that does not need any other materials added for production. 

Manufacturing BASTECH FRP rebar requires pultrusion of basalt roving mixed with resin through a production line to produce various sizes of BFRP rebar and chopped fibers. BASTECH basalt rebar complies with AC454, ASTM and FDOT requirements. In a construction industry that is increasingly environmentally conscious, BASTECH FRP rebar is a thoroughly modern, highly effective building material for today’s – and tomorrow’s – concrete reinforcement.
