PACIFIC in cooperation with ASA.TEC, (the worldwide leader in basalt fiber technology) proudly will introduce, BasaltX.

Basalt – Material from Mother Earth

Marcus Schwarz, CEO/Owner of PACIFIC comments: “Our R&D Department was already exploring the potential use of basalt fibers in some products, and then with our acquisition of Fischer Tennis and Racquet Sport Divisions, their added knowledge and know-how because of already using basalt fibers in racquets, together gave us an at once knowledge to further refine these basalt fibers — this technical refinement we call: BasaltX. Yes, basalt originates from the Earth and is a renewable, and 100% recyclable material! Basalt fibers are NOT new to the industry, but BasaltX is!!”
