Basalt projects GC as part of Russia’s official delegation is showcasing its products at the exhibition in Paris
From March 5 to 8 a major global composite event JEC World 2018 opened its doors in the city of Paris. Basalt Projects GC has showcased its products at this exhibition for the first time.
The event has been held annually since 1965 and brings together a huge number of high-class specialists worldwide. For 53 years, JEC World has been holding its position as the most famous event in the composite materials world. Every year attendees of this exhibition include the representatives of the aerospace, shipbuilding, automotive, construction, railway industry, municipal economy, plumbing manufacturers and many others.
This year Basalt projects GC has first showcased its products at the collective stand of Russian Federation’s official delegation, which was organized by the Russian Export Center JSC (REC JSC) in order to promote Russian non-resource-based exports.
The visitors have an opportunity to attend the composite profiles manufacturer, Kompozitor, (part of the Group of Companies), and see RedArmo products. Kompozitor is specialized in innovative continuous basalt fiber-based building materials produced by pultrusion, uses local, mined in Russia, raw materials and operates in-house developed machinery.
Pultrusion is a process for the high precision manufacture of profiles having a constant cross-section of any shape: round and rectangular pipes, I-beams, L-bars, channels, meshes, and customized products.
The strength of basalt products is comparable to those made of steel, but basalt products are 4 times more lightweight. These products offer low thermal conductivity, are resistant to temperature extremes, ultraviolet radiation, moisture and the other atmospheric conditions. A composite profile is resistant to corrosion impact, non-toxic, easy to process and ensure a long service life (50 years at least).
Brand RedArmo belongs to Basalt Projects GC. Under this brand the company manufactures a line of composite products at its own production facilities and offers them for wholesale and retail markets:
- basalt fiber to reinforce dry building mixes;
- basalt composite rebar and mini reinforcement to reinforce concrete mixes;
- basalt composite building meshes to reinforce horizontal layers of mortars.
Basalt projects GC is grateful to the REC JSC management represented by key officials from the Russian Federation Government and financial institutions for recognizing the Group’s activities worthy to present their products as the flagship innovation of the Russian industry.
