POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Oct. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Basanite Industries, LLC. a wholly owned subsidiary of Basanite, Inc. (OTCQB: BASA), (hereafter referred to as “Basanite” or the “Company”) today announced it has been granted Patent Pending status by the U.S. Patent Office and Trademark Office for its BasaFlexTM line of enhanced Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer (BFRP) composite rebar products.

About BasaFlex™: BasaFlexTM, a composite reinforcement bar or “rebar,” is a state-of-the-art, sustainable alternative to steel in concrete reinforcement. BasaFlexTM is engineered to add intrinsic value in a concrete structure by eliminating corrosion problems associated with typical steel reinforcement – saving both time and money over the lifecycle of a concrete structure. BasaFlexTM has a 100-year design life; is non-corrosive; is just 25% of the weight of steel but has a strength to weight ratio 2.5 times greater; is transparent to magnetic fields, radar frequencies and other high electro-magnetic fields; is both electrically and thermally non-conductive; and is easy to use and much safer to handle on the job site. Because of its core advantages and competitive price point, Basanite believes BasaFlexTM will become the construction industry’s #1 choice in concrete reinforcement.

As America begins to address rebuilding and repairing its bridges, tunnels, highways, dams, ports, buildings and other structures, Basanite is striving to take the lead in the next generation of infrastructure technology, with the availability of its highly engineered, green and sustainable concrete reinforcement products. The many advantages of all Basanite’s Basalt fiber-based products are clearly understood by the construction industry and each represents the best value proposition for the future.

About Basanite, Inc. and Basanite Industries: Basanite Industries, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Basanite, Inc. (OTCQB: BASA), a publicly traded company with primary interests in the manufacture of composite reinforcement products made from Basalt fiber reinforced polymers (BFRP).

Basanite Industries is positioned to become the industry leading supplier of engineered BFRP composite products for the concrete industry.
