Continuous basalt fibers are fibers manufactured by melting basalt rocks at high temperatures and processing them according to the needs of the end user industry. Abundantly available basalt rock is the only raw material required for the production of these fibers. Continuous basalt fibers have similar physical characteristics as glass fibers; however, these possess higher strength and are chemically inert to acids, alkalis and salts.
