Short Cut Fibres

Our short cut fibres have a defined length and are produced from continuous fibre tows made especially for STW. We work exclusively with selected fibre manufacturers who know our specifications and comply with them reliably.

With in-house-developed production processes, we cut fibre tows into short cut fibres, to which adhesion promoters are applied matched to end applications. When cutting the fibres, we only influence the fibre length, which is one of the decisive quality criteria.

The quality of our spun fibre tows which are shredded into short cut fibres, meets the very highest requirements. For this purpose, we are continually improving our multi-stage and fibre-specific comminution methods.
