Non-Woven Basalt Fabric
- story by MaterialDistrict
This needle-punching material is a non-woven fabric made out of chopped basalt fiber (60-100 mm) bound by the needle-punching method and without the use of any binding agents. It can be covered by foil on the one or two sides.
The temperature of application ranges between – 260° C and + 800° C, with non-woven basalt maintaining its structural strength within this temperature range. Vibration and acoustic insulating, this material is also extremely lightweight, elastic and fireproof. Its heat-conduction coefficient is (0,038 Vt/m*К) at 25° C.
Non-woven basalt fabrics can be used for the manufacturing of filters, composites, thermal-insulating and soundproofing materials. Needle-punching basalt is also highly suitable as fire protection material in high-rise buildings, industrial projects and fire-hazardous constructions (i.e. factories for the petrochemical industry).
This fabric is available in rolls 1 m or 1.5 m wide and up to 20 m long. The thickness of the material is 6 mm or 10 mm.
