Schwarzwälder Textil-Werke Heinrich Kautzmann GmbH develops and produces high-quality fibres for different industries and applications.
As leading specialists in fibre fillers, short cut fibres, fibrids & pulp, as well as customised solutions, we process all fibre materials; from natural fibres to synthetic fibres through to high-tech fibres. In addition to a comprehensive standard product range, we work with you in developing fibre solutions for your specific applications. All of this, of course, with outstanding quality and cost efficiency.
Thanks to decades of experience, continuous research and strong customer-orientation, we are able to react flexibly to new requirements with our bespoke fibre solutions.
Natural and synthetic fibres with a length of 0.5 to 4 mm are used to reinforce thermoplastics. The longer the fibre, the higher the reinforcing effect and the mechanical strength. The disadvantage of fibre fillers is poor pourability/dosage.
By using pellets, however, this can be significantly improved, also with longer fibres. Furthermore, dust generation and electrostatic charging are reduced. There is great potential in biopolymers, which are optimised by natural fibres. The substitution of glass fibres is also possible.
