Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymers

With an interest in meeting the evolving needs of our customers, The Materials Group has engineered plastics that meet ever-increasing performance standards, including more sustainable and environmentally friendly products.

Basalt fiber is a drawn, continuous fiber similar to glass (i.e., fiberglass) and to fibers made from carbon or aramid. It is structurally similar to E-glass fiber but offers performance, weight, cost and environmental benefits that make it an ideal reinforcement for a wide range of specialty plastic applications.

TMG offers chopped Basalt fiber reinforced nylon (Optilon) and polypropylene (Optipro) compounds and continues development of other polymers. Basalt can be custom compounded with other fillers like carbon fiber or glass fiber to meet unique performance criteria.
