The product


StoneRod fibre is a relatively new addition to the fibre industry.

A look at the "Products" list, on this website, will indicate the wide range of industries that can be served.


The initial, military development of basalt fibre products was a closely guarded secret, during the time of the Cold War. At this time, the Soviet Union, took the technology, improved on the production methods for the fibre, and used in in their weaponry, and aeronautical fields. The material was used by the Russian Military Forces for insulation, heat proofing, sound proofing, and bulletproofing.
