Paints with low thermal conductivity for high performance insulation and more. Paint that can insulate your house for much less expense than tearing apart walls to add insulation. Use as a thermal wall solution or to insulate your RV camper, boat, airplane, anything! http://basalt.guru/paints-with-low-thermal-conductivity-for-high-performance-insulation-and-more/

Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymers (BFRP) as a solution for steel rebar problems in concrete. I came across another article which references the problems associated with the constant use of steel rebars in our infrastructure. Adding a significant amount of #basaltreinforcements to these projects would go a long way in providing a much longer lasting solution. http://basalt.guru/basalt-as-a-solution-for-steel-rebar-problems-in-concrete/

The basics behind #basaltfiber as an alternative to E-glass and carbon fiber. When tested against E-glass and carbon fiber, basalt fiber panels have shown higher tensile modulus and strength. According to a Fraunhofer report, basalt composite showed a 40% higher strength than E-glass, and 20% higher stiffness. Basalt fiber is the perfect choice for applications requiring higher performance than E-glass and a lower price than carbon fiber. http://basalt.guru/the-basics-behind-basalt-fiber-as-an-alternative-to-e-glass-and-carbon-fiber/

Hawaii Fire Pit with Basalt Rebar. A fire pit installation in Hawaii uses basalt reinforcement rebar to take the heat! #Basaltrebar comes in coils so making a shape like this firepit would be very easy. No bending of steel to figure out. Mahalo Jim nice job! http://basalt.guru/hawaii-fire-pit-basalt-rebar/

Larte Design use basalt fiber in Tesla Model S front bumper. "... For the ultimate in motorsport-inspired strength and light weight, the bumper can be made from #BasaltFibre which is new material to the automotive world and has very similar properties to Carbon Fibre, being extremely strong while impressively light weight..." http://www.autoevolution.com/news/tesla-model-s-gets-the-aftermarket-touch-from-voltes-design-109460.html

Concrete Canoe National Competition: The Michigan Technology University’s Concrete Canoe Team took first place in the Midwest Region and 8th place at the National competition in Tyler, Texas last month. They placed top 10 in all categories. Using basalt mesh in the canoe construction made it super strong. The #basaltmesh helped increase the flexural strengths which resulted in no micro cracking during races. http://basalt.guru/concrete-canoe-basalt-mesh-wins-regionals-places-8th-nationals/
