What is Setralit used?

SETRALIT® is a raw material for industrial manufacturing and versatile. In technically demanding applications (eg friction linings) expensive synthetic fibers (eg aramids) can be replaced.

It can be applied either to a fiber composite material (semifinished or compound) or directly into end products (fiber-reinforced materials, gaskets, mats, etc.).

Applications for Setralit are:

Construction sector: cleaning, dry mortar, fiber cement, concrete, aerated concrete, plaster, screed, lime sand brick, plasterboard, insulation materials, insulation panels, emulsion paints.

Plastics: fiber-matrix semis, prepreg, SMC, BMC, injection molding, moldings, fiber reinforced plastics, in particular biopolymers.

Textiles: apparel, home textiles, industrial textiles, geotextiles, filter, spunlace nonwovens, medical and hygiene products.

Chemical industry: linings, seals, filter, fillers, thixotropic agents, bitumen, rubber, abrasives, cements, putty, glue.

Paper: Technical papers, cardboard, special papers.

Other applications (especially for shives and other by-products): animal bedding, bulk materials, animal feed (pectin, etc.), biogas, energy.

The ultrasonic method

Setralit Nfu


Raw material: The basic raw material of SETRALIT® - Fibre is a non-wood natural fibre which is generally called “vegetable fibre”. In many cases this is a bast fibre like hemp, flax, nettle, kenaf, jute, or ramie, but leaf fibres like sisal or musa textiles  ...

Ultrasonic treatment: The fibrous raw material is being exposed to an ultrasonic field in a watery medium for a time period between 10 and 120, usually 30 seconds. During this continuous  .... more

Fibers activities ECCO GROUP



In the last years ECCO has developed and continuously build up an additional business branch besides production and sales of high-performance lubricants: the production of industrial fibre basically made of renewable raw materials, favourably flax and hemp.

These fibers are alternatives for fibrous materials, as for example: Asbestos, Aramid, fiberglass or other synthetic fibers.There are other possible applications where no fibres at all have been used so far,...more
