Abstract

The mechanical and the physical properties, and the performance of texture roof tiles reinforced with the basalt fibers were observed. The samples of the basalt-fiber reinforced texture roof tiles were produced on the industrial scale by using filter pressing method. After forming, the as-molded samples were air cured and characterized based on ASTM C1185 standard for their mechanical properties and physical properties. In addition, the roof-tile installation test was also performed. The results showed that the samples of the basalt-fiber reinforced texture roof tile (BFRT) could be produced on the industrial scale by using the common setting of the forming machine without further adjustment. For the appearance, the samples of BFRT had the appearance alike the common texture-roof tile products. In addition, BFRTs could be cut and drilled by using the standard cutting machine and could be installed by using the standard procedure for texture roof tile installation. For the properties, BFRTs had the properties as required by the industry requirements including the modulus of rupture (MOR) greater than 5 MPa, the modulus of elasticity (MOE) greater than 7000 MPa, the impact resistance greater than 1000 J/m2, and the density between 1.5−2.2 g/cm3.
