Wooding Begins Production At Basalt Filament Plant

Production has begun at the state-of-the-art mineral fiber-producing plant of Wooding Technologies, Southampton, N.J., for the conversion of basalt rock into clean basalt filament, virtually free of shot and of consistent length and diameter.

Basalt filament fiber has a high melt point, high strength, excellent fiber/resin adhesion and the ability to be easily processed using conventional processes and equipment, the company says. Basalt filament is extremely strong, tough, chemically resistant, alkaline resistant and affordable.

The company plans to produce Basilk® basalt filament fibers. According to the company, these fibers will be of different lengths and diameters, and they will be available on cakes, spools, bobbins or chopped to specific lengths.
