SPECIFICATIONS DATA ON BASALT COMPOSITE REBAR The alternative to steel rebar BFRP Rebar is a sustainable, rust proof alternative to traditional steel reinforcement. Comparatively, it’s only 25% of the weight of steel, and has a Specific Tensile Strength that is 2.5 times greater! This equates to enhanced jobsite safety, with significant savings in transportation and handling costs. Basalt Rebar is made from volcanic rock and has a coefficient of thermal expansion similar to concrete. This homogeneous behavior reduces the cracking mechanism during extreme temperature fluctuations and or concurrent disparity. Basalt Rebar is engineered to last for over 100 years and is an excellent choice when considering continuous reinforcement that will never rust or require long-term maintenance costs. Unlike steel or other FRP’s. Basalt Rebar is completely impervious to attacks from alkali, chemicals or water. Allowing thinner, lighter panels and decks, Basalt Rebar reduces the thickness and spacing between the rods, concrete and surface. Smaller rods allow for more critical spacing and designs. Basalt Rebar does not conduct electricity or induce fields when exposed to RF energy thus making it great for MRI or data buildings. Basalt Rebar reinforcement is perfect for marine environments and chemical plants where corrosion is a continuous concern.

CERTIFICATIONS MAKE AN EDUCATED DECISION Basalt Rebar ACI Codes To be allowed by your local building inspector department to use basalt rebar reference the various ACI codes that apply. Here is the statement that applies to Basalt rebar… Basalt FRP Rebar is used as per ACI 440.1R-06. The construction use is dictated by code 440.6-08. It is specified by 440.5-08 and tested according to ASTM D7205 and several other test methods. ASTM testing of Basalt FRP rebar shows that Basalt FRP rebar easily meets the performance requirements of ACI 440.6-08. Also applicable to Basalt rebar is ACI 440R-07 Report on Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Reinforcement for Concrete Structures. The use of Basalt rebar came along after ACI 440.6-08 was published so the Basalt version of FRP was not specifically called out in that document. However, ACI 440R-07 (a later document) does specifically call out Basalt rebar as an FRP rebar. It says “Fibers commonly used to make FRP bars are glass, carbon, and aramid. Recently, continuous Basalt fibers have become commercially available as an alternative to glass fibers.” It talks about Basalt FRP rebar all through the document and includes it in its various tables, but the key point is that it is classed as FRP. Basalt FRP rebar is approved as natural fiberglass, meeting the certification specifications of ACI 440.6-08 and signed off as fiberglass FRP rebar. In doing so, the job will simply be overbuilt because the physicals of Basalt rebar are higher than fiberglass, falling between fiberglass and carbon fiber. Basalt rebar can be placed to meet code requirements by using the calculations and installation guidelines for fiberglass reinforcement of concrete as defined in ACI 440.6-08. Recommendations for maximum deflection and shear of concrete elements reinforced with fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) rebar’s are presented in ACI 440.1R-06 (2006) “Guide for the Design and Construction of Structural Concrete Reinforced with FRP Bars”. Basalt rebar has been tested at various universities and approved by the American Concrete Institute under ACI 440-10. Basalt rebar is used according to ACI 440. 1R-06. The construction use is dictated by code 440.6-08. It is specified by 440.5-08 and tested according to ASTM D7205 and several other testing methods. ISO 9001: Basalt rebar has been tested by several methods and approved by ISO 9001. In the ACI documentation, the term FRP (Fiber Reinforced Polymer ) includes Basalt based FRP. The term BFRP is often used instead of saying Basalt Rebar. Existing Basalt Rebar specifications and testing requirements.

Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 Q6 Q7 Q8 Q9 Q10 Q11 Q12 Q13 Q14 Q15 Q16 Q17 Q18 Q19 Q20 1. What is Basalt? Basalt is the most common rock on the planet and defined as an extrusive igneous (volcanic) rock that is low in silica content, dark in color, and comparatively rich in iron and magnesium. By way of comparison, basalt fiber is similar to carbon fiber or fiberglass, but basalt has superior mechanical properties than fiberglass, and has a significantly lower cost than carbon fiber (10 – 15X lower). 2. What’s the difference between Basalt Rebar and fiberglass rebar? Basalt and Glass are both FRP’s and similar in price, but with some major exceptions: ● Basalt has twice the working temperature of fiberglass (400°C vs 200°C) ● Basalt has 20 – 40% better mechanical properties and puncture resistance ● Basalt has a much greater resistance to chemicals, alkali and UV ● Basalt is very Eco-Friendly; with a dramatically lower environmental impact (10 : 1) 3. Is Basalt Rebar a green product? Bluefiber Group is a proud member of the US Green Building Council, and its BFRP Rebar is Eco-Friendly. According to the ACMA, the American Composite Manufacturing Association, it has demonstrated that the production of BFRP Rebar has less than 1/10th the carbon footprint of steel, and basalt has the lowest environmental impact in a Life-Cycle Assessment compared with other FRP (Fiber Reinforced Polymer) rebars. Basalt fiber is all natural and produced from stone; having no additives that are typically found in other materials such as glass fiber. Additional LEEDs contributions are found in the transportation and handling. Steel requires 4 truckloads vs. 1 for Basalt Rebar. Steel requires special equipment to unload vs. none for Basalt Rebar , and 50% more time & labor is expended to receive and unload the exact same number of steel rebar compared with Basalt Rebar ! 4. How does Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer (BFRP) Rebar compare with steel rebar? BFRP is a sustainable, rust proof alternative to traditional steel reinforcement, with 25% of the weight of steel and a specific tensile strength that is 2.5 times greater (bar for bar). It’s also Impervious to attacks from alkali, chemicals or water, which causes steel to corrode (iron oxide hydrate, or rust). 5. How does one directly compare the performance between Basalt Rebar and steel? Calculations for Steel’s performance are based on long existing standard (or stipulated) data, and therefore selected according to its guaranteed tensile strength (Example: Grade 60 = 60,000 psi). Calculations for Basalt Rebar are dependent upon data generated and Certified from a 3rd Party accredited laboratory. Although the engineering for FRP’s is different than steel, the mechanical data for either product is used similarly to determine the proper amount of reinforcement in a cross section of concrete. Basanite provides proprietary software that allows the design professional to directly compare the standards and calculations for BFRP use in ACI 440, with the standards and calculations outlined in ACI 318 for steel. This “Code Normalization” demonstrates the selection of Basalt Rebar can be an excellent alternative to steel, thus making it easier for a designer to select BFRP and capture all the benefits not available when selecting steel rebar. 6. How does Basalt Rebar pricing compare with steel pricing? This varies depending on the cost of steel this week. One of the values of selecting Basalt Rebar , is that its pricing is stable compared with steel. Typically, steel pricing is good for a week at a time, forcing larger buy-ups to secure best pricing. Normally, “off the shelf” pricing of steel from large wholesalers, is cheaper than FRP’s. However, steel rebar and BFRP rebar are clearly not “apples to apples” as reinforcing products – and shouldn’t be compared that way. More often than not, you will save money using Basalt Rebar on a sizeable project based on the final “in-place cost” - everything considered. Additionally, the Total Cost of Ownership is greatly reduced by choosing Basalt Rebar over steel rebar. 7. Can you bend Basalt Rebar at the jobsite? Hard bends at the jobsite are not possible. All hard bends (90’s, stirrups, angles, etc.) are fabricated during production; according to your design and delivered to the job site along with the straight bars. This practice saves the installer significant time and eliminates waste for a quicker and easy installation. 8. Does Basalt FRP have its own governing body like Steel? Yes. ACI (American Concrete Institute) 440.1R-15 offers general information on the history and use of all FRP reinforcement, a description of the unique material properties of FRP, and guidelines for the design and construction of structural concrete members reinforced with FRP bars. You will also find specific information about the selection and use of FRP’s in AC454, Fiber-reinforced Polymer (FRP) Bars for Internal Reinforcement of Concrete Members Acceptance as part of the ICC-ES, and FDOT’s Spec 932-3. 9. What testing of significance has been performed on Basalt Rebar? Outside of multiple ASTM testing criterion, Basalt Rebar has passed the equivalent of AC 454 testing protocol (Fiber-reinforced Polymer (FRP) Bars for Internal Reinforcement of Concrete Members Acceptance), as specified within the Basalt Rebar Certificate of Compliance, most recently published in January of 2021. 10. What are typical applications for BFRP? Although Basalt Rebar can be used in any cubic yard (or meter) of concrete, the most attractive applications are usually those harshest applications where steel rebar is not really part of the solution… for example: ● Hydraulic Structures & Precast ● Freeze Thaw Environments ● Thin Wall & Panel Systems ● Harsh Chemical Environments ● Architectural Precast ● Bridge Decking ● Sea Walls & Marine Applications ● High Heat Applications ● Shielding Concrete 11. What are the main advantages of BFRP Rebar? A. 100% Corrosion and Rust Proof – This eliminates spalling and cracking experienced by selecting traditional steel reinforcement and further eliminates the costs and need for special coatings or treatments on your concrete. You can even consider a reduction in the overall concrete depth or wall thickness – also saving money and time on the project. All in all, by using Basalt Rebar . Rebar you are reducing the Total Cost of Ownership and creating a 100+ year useful lifecycle! B. 75% Lighter than Steel – The lighter weight makes Basalt Rebar safer and easier to unload, handle and place, saving time on the jobsite. Also, it requires no special equipment to unload the truck. Trucking is also a huge advantage with less trips (4 x 1) for the same linear footage of bar. C. Stronger than Steel – Basalt Rebar has a specific tensile strength of 2.5 X greater than steel rebar. This attribute allows you to go down a bar size in secondary reinforcement applications! D. Non-Conductive – Bluefiber’s entire family of reinforcing products are all non-conductive, and do not interfere with RF signals – unlike carbon and steel reinforcement. E. Natural Resistance – Basalt Rebar is naturally resistant to heat, chemicals, UV, alkali and moisture. Basalt Rebar can be considered for even the harshest environments and applications. 12. Does salt water affect BFRP? Test results show that the static strength of the BFRP shows negligible degradation after prolonged aging in the salt solution, making Basalt Rebar an excellent choice for salt water concrete applications. 13. Are there bad applications for BFRP’s? Pretty much anywhere you have selected up to a #8 (25 mm or 1.0” diameter) rebar, you can consider Basalt Rebar as an alternative. At this time, FRP’s are not recommended as the main structural members for primary vertical reinforcement in high rises of more than 4 stories – although, neither is #8 steel in most cases. This is due to a lower modulus vs steel. It is however, approved for use in the internal walls and flooring to reduce the weight of the structure. 14. Is Basalt Rebar manufactured in the USA? Yes. Bluefiber’s family of reinforcing products are produced right here in the USA. Our current production facility is located in Pompano Beach, FL; with future plans to grow into several manufacturing plants throughout the US. 15. What sizes of Basalt Rebar are available? Bluefiber provides Basalt Rebar in #2 - #8 Bar sizes, which is equal to ¼” – 1.0” in diameter. Standard stocked bar lengths are 10’, 20’ and 40’ (3M, 6M and 12M). Longer length coils are available up through #4 (1/2”) diameter size bar, with custom cut sizes available upon request. Watch for announcements in the second half of 2021 as Basanite will then be commercializing #9 & #10 (1.128” & 1.270”) Basalt Rebar . Special stirrups, bends and shapes are engineered and can be produced from any size of bar (#2 - #8). 16. What other types of reinforcing products does Bluefiber produce? Other than Bluefiber’s “patent pending” BFRP Rebar, the company proudly produces a line of Basalt Fiber (Micro and Macro), as well as a line of GeoGrid Mesh. Basalt Rebar is a blend of chopped basalt fibers that provide, 3-dimensional, secondary isotropic reinforcement. Basalt Rebar (Microfiber) and BasaMix-M (Macro Fiber) are engineered to impart toughness to any concrete element at a range of 0.1% – 0.3% by volume respectively. BasaMix™ delivers 100’s of millions of individual, high tenacity fibers that control the formation of plastic shrinkage cracking by absorbing the stresses associated with volumetric changes in fresh and hardened concrete, leaving you with a fiber-free finish. BasaMix™ greatly improves the surface performance and durability of your concrete through impact and fatigue resistance, and through freeze / thaw cycles. BasaMesh™ is a Geo Grid Mesh made from Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymers and is used as an alternative to traditional welded wire mesh in walls, flatwork, and precast – especially in reinforcing applications where coverage and depth of application or shadowing are of concern. 17. What is Modulus strength? Often known as Young’s Modulus, or Tensile Modulus, is a mechanical property of linear elastic materials, or its stiffness. It evaluates the elasticity of rigid or solid material, which is the relation between the deformation of a material and the power needed to deform it, or the stress in a material just before it yields in a flexure test. Modulus is typically measured in GPa’s (Gigapascals). 18. What is Tensile strength? Tensile strength is the maximum load that a material can support without rupture when being overextended (in short, an ability to withstand a pulling force), divided by the original cross-sectional area of the material. Tensile strengths are typically measured in pounds per square inch, or psi. 19. Why is Tensile strength so important? Often a reduction in ductility and an increase in brittleness are related to an enhanced corrosion rate, which subsequently can change the failure of a material from a ductile failure (beyond the limits of tensile strength) to a perilous brittle failure. As noted in the paragraph above, and as a point of common sense, steel rusts and corrodes. 20. What is pultrusion, and how is it compared to extrusion? Pultrusion is a process where fibers, in this instance basalt fibers, are pulled through a resin matrix and a precise die; then heated at specific temperatures where the resin is cured in and around the fibers. Extrusion melts resin pellets and pushes them through a die to create fibers and profiles Up
