About Fibrecoat GmbH
Fibrecoat is a spin off of RWTH Aachen University. They produce high performance composite fibres using their patented coating device which they install on rentedfibre spinning plants. This approach keeps their CapEx low and the production flexible while enabling them to create both metal coated fibres as well as polymer coated fibres. FiberCoat is able to coat individual filaments during the manufacturing process using their coating technology, achieving a production speed of over 1,500 m/min and a completely uniform sheathing.
“The materials industry is unlike any other industry as the impact and applications are very broad,” stated Dr. Robert Brüll, Fibrecoat’s CEO. “Therefore it is great to find peers who understand the challenges we face and are able to offer great solutions.”
In January 2021, Fibrecoat launched ALUCOAT™, an aluminum-coated basalt fibre which is suitable as electro-magnetic shielding material in automotive applications such as battery or e-drive casings as well as for mobile phones and as wallpaper for buildings.
These fibres are ten times cheaper than comparable conductive fibres, which are currently in great demand for applications in e-mobility or electromagnetic shielding. Compared to traditional composite materials, ALUCOAT’s™ extraordinary thermal conductivity and heat transfer capabilities means it is ideal for applications such as battery casings, electric diverters in filters, reinforcement of cast aluminum parts or as conductive yarns in smart textiles.
