AluCoat – Metal fibres for the world

Have you always wanted to melt aluminium and spin ultra-thin fibres from glass or basalt? Then you’ve come to the right place! Alucoat is a project that develops high performance metal fibres that can be used to for electromagnetic shielding or as reinforcement material in lightweight construction. These metal fibres are produced using our novel coating process that has large economical benefits. As a result, a Start-Up, FibreCoat GmbH, is founded to commercialise this material for the global market.
