Hamburg, 15. March 2023 – Biesterfeld, one of the world's leading distribution and service companies in the field of plastics, rubber and specialty chemicals, and Gummiwerk KRAIBURG, a leading producer of rubber and silicone compounds, have entered a strategic sales partnership with immediate effect.

KRAIBON® – Elastomers act as perfect enhancement for composites

KRAIBON® is a thin foil made of unvulcanized rubber, developed by Gummiwerk KRAIBURG and employed in automotive, sport and leisure fields as well as many industrial applications. The KRAIBON® product family improves the performance of composites with regard to acoustics, light weight, splinter and impact resistance. Its distinguishing features are excellent adhesion, flexibility and short cycle times in production.

Biesterfeld Spezialchemie has identified considerable opportunities in the cooperation and will take over the sales and service operations for KRAIBON®. „KRAIBON® is an ideal addition to our portfolio for advanced composites. Many industries are set to benefit from the technical properties, ranging from sound insulation for laminates, flexible joining of fibre composite materials all the way to optimized splintering behavior“, claims Dr. Johannes Martin, Product Manager Performance Products at Biesterfeld Spezialchemie.

Johannes Helldobler, Product Manager for KRAIBON® at Gummiwerk KRAIBURG confirms: “We look forward to a successful long-term sales partnership with Biesterfeld. Our customers will benefit from optimized availability, in- depth technical expertise and experience within the Biesterfeld sales and service network.“
