Setralit® fibers from regenerating raw material
Because of impulses given from the friction lining industry and with help of public sponsorship ECCO started in the beginning of the nineties to develop new fibre products for industrial applications on the basis of renewable raw materials. The core of this development is the Ultrasonic Method which was developed by ECCO and patented worldwide. With the Ultrasonic Method it is possible to create high-performance natural fibres in a reproducible quality and with an acceptable price-performance ratio. The trade name is
After intensive research ECCO has created a multiplicity of high-quality technical fibres made of natural fibres from renewable resources.
Setralit® is a technical natural fiber based on plant fibers whose property profile has been modified selectively in order to meet different industrial requirements. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Setralit
