BasaTexx FP

Fireproof Membranes

BasaTexx FP is an innovative, high-performance technical fabric made of Basalt and treated with a fire-resistant coating. Through the interaction of the mineral fiber material with a special elastomer coating, a non-combustible, flexible, and lightweight tarpaulin or composite material was created.

The new developed fabric can be used for multifunctional applications and system solutions. Wherever high fire protection requirements are necessary and the general fire load has to be reduced, BasaTexx FP is the perfect lightweight material solution. The fabric meets the requirements of building material class A2-s1,d0 according to DIN 4102-1 and EN 13501-1 (equals to ISO 1182).

BasaTexx FP is characterized by a high flame retardancy and temperature resistance (up to 1.200 °C / 2,200 °F); high tensile and compressive strengths; UV-, chemical and corrosion resistance and no melting and dripping behaviour when exposed to fire.

shapes the future

With our knowledge and experience, we contribute to transfer ideas into value-added solutions for the benefit of our customers.


We offer a wide range of yarns and fabrics, which combine high functionality with low weight.

Fire- and Heat-resistant Textiles

We develop tailor-made fabrics that cover the entire spectrum from standaridzed specifications to the highest requirements in terms of fire- and heat-resistance.

High-Performance Materials

We continuously test new high-performance materials developed by our suppliers, as well as new finishes and coatings, and integrate them into our value-added solutions for the market.


Hybrids are combinations of different materials in a twist or fabric. With textile hybrids, the best properties of different raw materials can be combined. This offers a multitude of new possibilities in specific areas of applications.

Ribbon fabrics

We develop ribbon fabrics up to a width of 15 mm. Our process ensures a twist-free weft thread in the final fabric to achieve optimum functionality. We can process several yarn materials and types, including fiber composites.

Grid and Scrim Fabrics

With our innovative production processes, we are able to realize all kinds of grid and scrim structures in one production process - from weaving to finishing and strengthening (with SBR, PVC, dispersion or acrylate).

RF-free Adhesives

We offer our sustainable RF-free (resorcinol formaldehyde-free) treatment solution MSA - MEHLER SUSTAIN ADHESIVE to combine textiles with various types of rubber.

Multilayer fabrics

With our special weaving machines, we are able to create 3D structures and multi-layered fabrics.

Wire mesh

Our technology is designed to integrate metals and mineral fibers into our weaving processes.

Industry 4.0

We continuously invest in and develop our global production network. One of our long-term goals is to combine operating and information technology into a network of smart factories and machines.
