Testing Protocol and Material Specifications for Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Bars

The first objective is to establish a minimum level of purity as well as the fiber property minimum requirements (including strength and resistance to chemicals) and corresponding composition ranges, paralleling ASTM D578 Standard Specification for Glass Fiber Stands. The second objective will be to establish acceptable formulations and/or classes of sizing chemicals that are compatible with basalt fibers and the will form effective interfacial bonding to select resin matrices. The third objective will be to identify the resin matrix that will provide highest performance when combined with appropriately sized basalt fibers to produce basalt fiber-reinforced polymer (BFRP) reinforcing for concrete.
