Basalt Rebar - 8mm (.32 Inches)


Rods made of a unidirectional composite of basalt fibers offer significant advantages over steel rebar in a variety of applications.

• Higher specific strength than steel rebar
• 89% lighter in weight: one ton of basalt reinforcement rods provides the reinforcement of 9.6 tons of steel rebar

Resistant to corrosion and deterioration of natural elements
• Resistant to alkali and acid
• Same coefficient of thermal expansion as concrete
• No permanent deformation when bent
• Chemically inert, basalt rods are compatible with concretes having different Ph values

When used to reinforce concrete, basalt reinforcement rods are an advanced alternative to steel rebar.

Ideal for:
• Hydraulic engineering
• Highway reinforcement
• Concrete building and facing slabs
• Concrete barriers
• Highlighting poles
• Other structural components and applications.

Basalt reinforcement rods are also an alternative building and construction solution in regions prone to earthquake and seismic hazards.

Ask a Question
  • Are the basalt rods suitable to replace metal rods when repinning a die to a base?

    Yes, they are an ideal alternative. They are very strong and thermally stable to temperature changes, and will not rust or expand.
