Innovative Materials

Nano engineered Epoxy

The systems is a low viscosity reactive carbon nanotubes engineered epoxy system tailor made for the composites industry . it is suitable for wet lamination and impregnation of different type of fibers.

Made with proprietary Nano tech dispersion technologies , it is designed to improve impact and compression resistance with enhanced damping properties and fatigue compared to any traditional epoxies.

High Conductivity Thermoplastic

Family of nano engineered thermoplastic polymers,formulated as a conductive masterbatch, that exhibit good electrical conductivity at low nano carbon concentration.

It is suitable for injection and extrusion processes when dilutes with similar thermoplastic polymer having different hardness’s and fluidity.

The dilution ratio will depends on the desired final electrical properties and we recommend a ration 1:3 , 1:5 and 1.10.

3D Wowens Joints and Preforms

3D woven joints and preforms are widely used in the Aerospace industry. Thanks to low cost, fast production and lightweight solutions, 3D woven carbon fiber composites are high tech state of the art products.

The advantages of using 3D woven composites, instead of common 2D laminated composite are as follows for a T shape woven preform example



  • Directly woven into complex net shapes.
  • High fiber volume and strength.
  • Improved impact resistance and Compression After Impact
  • Consist of X, Y and Z yarns.
  • Yarns can be controlled according to stability, strength and shape desired in the end product.
  • Possibility to choose different fiber types such as carbon fiber, aramid, glass etc. in the weaving process.
  • Practically zero delamination between the layers.
  • Reduce the cost of composite parts production.

Assembled Basalt Roving

Assembled roving consists of several strands, drawn at the facility for production of continuous basalt fiber to be assembled together at assembling machines.

Assembled roving is supplied in bobbins of internal or external unwinding. Russian Basalt produced assembled roving have the following characteristics :

  • Material - basalt rock;
  • Application - pultrusion, winding, production of multi-axial fabrics, etc.;
  • Description - assembled roving of continuous basalt filaments;
  • Color - dark-olive;
  • Odor - inodorous;
  • Monofilament diameter - 9 - 17 mkm;
  • Linear density - 600 - 4800 Tex;
  • Tensile strength - at least 650 mN/Tex;
  • Tensile strength in epoxy impregnated strand (ASTM D2343) - 2900 - 3300 MPa;
  • Tensile modulus in epoxy impregnated strand (ASTM D2343) - 80 - 95 GPa;
  • Operation temperature - from -260 to +700 Celsius degrees;
  • Elongation - 3.5%;
  • Type of sizing - silan;
  • Sizing content - not more 1%;
  • Bobbin type - cylindrical bobbin with internal or external unwinding;
  • Bobbin weight - as customer requested;
  • Standart packing - 72 bobbins in pallet.

Basalt Chopped Fibers

Basalt chopped strands are short extracts of basalt fiber, used for the reinforcement of binder mixtures.

Russian Basalt manufacture chopped strands in compliance with the following technical specifications :



  • Material - basalt rock;
  • Application - reinforcement;
  • Description - chopped roving of continuous basalt fiber;
  • Colour - dark-olive;
  • Monofilament diameter - 13 - 17 mkm;
  • Chop length - 6 - 72 mm;
  • Operation temperature - from -260 to +700 Celsius degrees;
  • Humidity - 0.1 - 8%;
  • Type of sizing - water-compatible;
  • Packing - polypropylene bags;
  • Packing weight - 10, 20, 500 kg.


  • Depending on the application the strands are chopped either from wet roving (water content is around 8 to 10%) covered by water-compatible sizing or dry roving (water content is 0.5 to 0.8%) covered by hydrophobic sizing.

Multiaxial Basalt Fabrics

Parallel reinforcement fibers are laid in different orientations, layer-by-layer, and stitched together with a lightweight polyester yarn to form a fabric.

Respect to woven fabrics, NC fabrics offer better mechanical properties, primarily from the fact that the fibers are always straight and that more orientations of fiber are available from the increased number of layers of fabric.

 Due to the stitched nature of the multiaxial construction, the crimp effect associated with woven fabric is in this case not present.

Oligocyanurate Binders

Oligocyanurate binders have extremely high tech end usage applications in the space industry , aviation and deepwater element.

As an example on near-earth orbit where temperature drops to ─160°C and rise to + 160°C, and high exposure to radiation, unprotected structures of spacecraft made of polymer composite materials begin to form microcracks that increase with time.

This leads to a deterioration in performance of precision structures as for example, in case of degradation of reflectors of spacecraft antennas and their supporting telescope tubes, the signal is defocused, sensitivity and resolution are reduced, with the consequence of the service life of the spacecraft in orbit greatly reduced.

The research led to new material which have an unprecedent strength and stiffness with a low weight ratio.Combined with an ultra- light high temperature heat insulator that can be expose to 1300 C for 3 minutes.

Graphene Additives

This innovative product is commercial thermo stable resins (polyester, vinyl ester and epoxy), doped with graphene additive.

Resins doped with graphene provide more advantages to the final composites such as greater strength, greater rigidity and anti-corrosion, fireproof and self-extinguishing properties.

In the pultrusion process, the fiber impregnated with resins are subjected to pulling operations and enclosed in a closed mould at high temperature so that the polymerising and curing process of the resin occurs in their interior.

Its advantages compared to other processes notably include:

  • High rigidity and consistency of the end products.
  • Versatility of shapes, depending on the geometry of the mould.
  • Profiles cut to measure. Possibility of obtaining long lengths.
  • High production speed and continuity.
  • Good surface finish.
