Abstract: This contribution presents selected results of investigations performed in studying the time-dependent changes in the mechanical performance of basalt fibre, multifilament yarns in cementitious matrices. Two basalt fibre materials both in their original condition and after treatment with an additional coating were investigated. The fibres were embedded in ten-sile test specimens which then were stored for one year in a fog chamber to accelerate the aging process. After specific storage times, the pullout behaviour of the embedded fibres was tested and, in parallel, the condition of the basalt fibres investigated by means of elec-tron microscopy in an ESEM. A good correlation between the loss of mechanical perfor-mance and the condition of the basalt fibres after accelerated aging was observed.
