What is replaced by Setralit?

SETRALIT® is an ecologically and economically interesting alternative to synthetic fibers and conventional natural fibers. Many application areas in which early asbestos was used, can be covered with SETRALIT®. So SETRALIT® is also a replacement for asbestos.

SETRALIT® can with conventionally won natural fibers and high-quality synthetic fibers, such as Para-aramids, compete. Compared to conventional natural fibers are the high purity, noted consistent quality and higher thermal load capacity, compared with high-quality synthetic fibers are the environmentally friendly in production and use, and you better price-performance ratio.
The market for fiber made from renewable raw materials is growing strongly. The long term goal of ECCO is to advance the replacement of conventional mineral and synthetic fibers by anti-toxic vegetable fibers in the industry without having to compromise on performance or quality of the fibers.

According nova-Institut, Hürth, exist in the future for increased material utilization of agricultural commodities no alternatives. This form biomaterials, for example, biodegradable and durable bioplastics, natural fiber (bio) plastics (NFC) and Wood-Plastic-Composites (WPC), a particularly interesting new material group. The SETRALIT®-fiber is ideal for reinforcing such bioplastics, since it combines high performance with environmental benefits.

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
