Scientific and Research Laboratory

The main goal is to adopt the previously developed basalt technologies and to facilitate their further advances, and also to create the community of scientists, engineers and teaching staff.

It is planned to install equipment in all the basic technological areas related to the manufacture and testing of fiber and composites in the Research Center laboratories, including:

  • research of basalt raw materials and laboratory manufacture of the fiber;
  • thermo-technical modeling and research;
  • textile manufacture;
  • composite manufacture using the processes of pultrusion, winding, SMC/BMC, injection etc.

It is necessary to extensively develop CBF technologies, including the most sophisticated ones, such as 3D composite printing. Therefore, the Research Center will unite not only basalt and composite professionals, but also experts working in materials science, heat engineering, machine building etc.
