SETRALIT® - natural fibres can be used in nearly all areas which were dominated by asbestos and later on by synthetic or glass fibres. They can be treated additionally or they can be applied without further treatment dependent on application.

The length of the technical SETRALIT® fibre and trends of application are shown:

long fibre     > 100 mm      
textile application

yarn, texture, fleece
short fibre  0,5 - 10 mm
reinforcement fibre

material fortification  < 1    
process fibre

improvement of processing
The selection of the appropriate type of fibre depends on its final application. The following attributes of natural fibres in general as well as of ultrasonically treated natural fibres can therefore be decision-making:

  • Purity
  • Consistency
  • Stiffness
  • Low concentration of impurities
  • High brightness,
  • High specific surface
  • Good processing attributes
  • Matting effect
  • Stable to corrosion  
  • Insensible against alkaline
  • Wettability  
  • High water absorption  
  • No electrostatic charge  
  • Thermoshock resistance
  • Non-poisonous (especially in case of fire)
  • Easy to reuse  
  • Handy disposal
  • Low price

Typical areas of use for SETRALIT® - fibres are:

Sector of construction:

  • Plaster, dry mortar
  • Fibre-cement  
  • Various sorts of concrete
  • Sand-lime brick
  • Gypsum, floor pavement  
  • Insulation
  • Emulsion paint


  • Injection moulding
  • Moulds
  • Other composites (fibre-reinforced plastics)


  • Garments and household textiles
  • Industrial textiles  
  • Filter
  • Medical and hygienic items  
  • Geo-textiles

Chemical Industry:

  • Friction lining  
  • Sealing
  • Filter media
  • Fillers  
  • Thixotropic agents  
  • Bitumen
  • Rubber  
  • Polishing agent  
  • Mastic, spackle, glue


  • Technical papers
  • Paper board container  
  • Special papers

Other applications (particularly for shives and other by-products):

  • Bedding for animals
  • Bulk solids  
  • Animal feed (pectin and others)  
  • Biogas
  • Energy generation

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
