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
