For over twenty years, the world's biggest ABS manufacturer Chi Mei and the international distributor Biesterfeld Plastic have exhibited together at the K fair. At this year’s K, the long-term partners will be focusing on raw materials for products that come into contact with food. These products have to be in line with special standards and guidelines, such as EU Regulation 10/2011. These are fulfilled by the new Polylac® 757F ABS and Kibisan® PN-107L125 FG SAN, which are opening up a wide range of new food contact applications, for example in household items.
Another new product that will also be highlighted at K 2016 is the Polylac® 757H ABS for non-food applications. Polylac® 757H ABS has very good flow properties combined with excellent impact strength. Usually mutually exclusive, these characteristics have now been successfully combined in one product. The possible applications are numerous and include, for example, complex housing parts and tool boxes.
Gerard Chao, Chi Mei’s Vice President for Sales and Marketing, explains that “As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of thermoplastics, Chi Mei works constantly to develop advanced plastic and rubber materials that keep pace with global trends. We are glad having Biesterfeld, our official distributor in Europe and one of the key partners in South America and Thailand, together in the K fair to introduce our competitive and innovative materials to the global marketplace. The event surely provides a good opportunity to showcase the outstanding products and service Chi Mei and Biesterfeld can offer”.
Carsten Harms, Managing Director of Biesterfeld Plastic and Executive Board Member of Biesterfeld AG, commented on the company’s attendance at the trade fair: “For us, the K fair is one of the highlights of the year. This time, Biesterfeld and Chi Mei are adding even more of an international element as we collaborate not only in Europe but also in Brazil and Thailand. With the new products, Chi Mei is underlining its reputation as a speciality manufacturer for ABS and SAN.” At K 2016 in Düsseldorf, at stand B18 in hall 5, a team of over 100 Biesterfeld employees from the international subsidiaries will be available to answer visitors’ questions about plastics and rubber. In addition to the Chi Mei product range, the Biesterfeld team will present the complete range available from Biesterfeld. Appointments can be arranged in advance by contacting bpg-info[at]biesterfeld[dot]com.
