Natural Fine-Tuning

Blending Basalt Fibers with Plant Fibers in Thermoplastic and Thermoset Composites

Natural Fine-Tuning

A blend of natural plant and inorganic fibers produces a composite with a very good property profile, without reducing the content of renewable raw materials. In this way, plant fibers such as kenaf or flax hybridized with basalt fibers can compete with glass fiber reinforcement as a low-cost, natural lightweight construction material.
