Basalt Mesh Fabrics

Mesh Fabric, made from Basalt fiber

As its preferred use is in outdoor applications, it is also considered to be a Geotextile.

Technically, not all meshes are woven; the first picture is a leno woven, but picture two, three & five are not woven;

Following advantages make this product superior over an E-Glass Mesh: 

  • Ecologically safe
  • Withstands very high temperature of molten asphalt
  • Very high strength and durability
  • Alkali-resistant and chemically inert
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Will not damage tires if exposed to road surface
  • 2.7 times lighter than metallic mesh, for easier handling and reduced transport costs
  • Up to 47% increase in asphalt surface life on roads and highways.

Basalt Geo-Mesh is also ideal for soil and embankment stabilization and land-fill coverings, due to its high strength and environmental and ecological safety.

Meshes can be offered with and without resin coatings.

Standard constructions:

5mm x 5mm (1/4″ x 1/4″) squares

10mm x 10 mm (3/8″ x 3/8″) squares

25mm x 25 mm (1″ x 1″) squares
