FibreCoat GmbH produces inexpensive high performance composite fibres using a highly productive patented spinning technology. These are glass fibres with a polymer sheath or basalt fibres with an aluminium sheath.

FiberCoat GmbH is able to coat the individual filaments directly in the manufacturing process using a coating technology developed at the RWTH Aachen University, achieving a production speed of over 1,500 m/min and a completely homogeneous sheathing. With ALUCOAT, FibreCoat has launched its first product on the market this month. These fibres are significantly cheaper than comparable conductive fibres, which are currently in great demand for applications in e-mobility or electromagnetic shielding.
