Our company and our products are aligned with one goal in mind – to change the way we build
A material as old as the earth itself combined with 21st century technologies now allows us to finally solve the problem we’ve been plagued with for 150 years: Steel rusts and always will.
One of this country’s most costly and serious problems is the continuing deterioration of our infrastructure due to rusty and failing steel reinforcements. We intend to create awareness and provide education around our state of the art products and be the leader in this revolutionary shift. We are focused on becoming the standard alternative to steel rebar. Our reinforcements are certified to be stronger, lighter, greener and longer lasting, and it is our objective to create awareness of this incredible technology.
Basalt America can save American taxpayers the enormous costs of this country’s ongoing and future skyrocketing maintenance and reports of our roads, bridges and tunnels. The June 2016 official printing of AC-454 now allows for basalt fiber reinforced polymers (BFRP) to be used in the reinforcement of concrete. Additionally, States are also mandated to consider “life cycle” costs of all future road and bridge products as written in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP 21) passed on July 6, 2012.
Due to the fact that Basalt products never rust, we believe they meet the mandated requirements, vastly reducing the need to redo infrastructure and obtain very little maintenance costs over time.
Our philosophy is “top down” awareness and marketing of our products and their positive affects. We continue to use our resources to help mandate on a municipal and governmental level that our products get considered on upcoming road and bridge projects where corrosion resistant materials are required. Our diverse management team includes top leaders the from finance, marketing and innovative design and manufacturing who believe we have generated a product that is on the cusp of the “next industrial revolution.”
Basalt America is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Paymeon, Inc., a publicly traded company (OTC markets: PAYM). Paymeon acquired Basalt America (formerly known as Rockstar Acquisitions) in February, 2017, to exploit the coming “paradigm shift” underway in construction away from traditional steel reinforcement products and towards environmentally friendly, non-corrosive composite products.
