WE HARNESS THE FIRE TO CONTROL THE SEA MEET US AT BOOTH #142 WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF WE COULD REPLACE STEEL AS REINFORCEMENT WITH SOMETHING NON-CORROSIVE? A couple of years ago we asked ourselves this question and a long process was started. After a couple of years of development, a patent was applied for covering a new production method using Basalt as reinforcement. Basalt is volcanic rock formed from the rapid cooling of lava. Basalt Rebar reinforcement is an alternative to steel for reinforcing concrete, basalt rebar is tough, stronger than steel and has a higher tensile strength. Basalt rebar is naturally resistant to alkali, rust and acids, therefore perfect for Marine environments.
