FIRE BARRIER PREPREGS :

  

Basalt fibers are extruded from 100% basalt volcanic rocks. High quality fibers are selected for the production of Basaltex’ fabrics. Basalt fibers production emits less carbon dioxide and has a more positive ecological profile compared to other mineral fibers. They are characterized by great mechanical properties combined with good heat and chemical resistance.

Polyfurfuryl alcohol (PFA) finds its origins in the conversion of hemicellulose, isolated from sugar cane residues after refinery, to furfural and subsequently polymerization. PFA is a VOC-free thermoset resin systems already used in composites for construction industry and public transport as fire resistant material and a natural alternative for phenolic resins.

BASALTEX BAS1101 prepreg is designed as fire barrier in composites for public transport, aviation, maritime, automotive as well as construction.

Typical features:

- self-extinguishing basalt prepreg with low heat and smoke release
- cure between 130 – 150 °C (press moulding, vacuum bagging, autoclave)
- short cycles and high productivity by press moulding
- rated to IMO FTPCode, EN 45545-2 and FAR25.853
- ecological and environmental friendly
