The competence leader KRAIBURG TPE will present itself with a broad portfolio covering every aspect of sustainability at the upcoming K 2022 trade fair held from October 19 to 26 in Düsseldorf. Traditionally located at “Rubber Street”, the manufacturer provides issues and solutions involving thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) as well as an extended service portfolio. 

Preparations for K 2022 trade fair are in full swing, since it’s only a few weeks before Messe Düsseldorf will open its doors for the world of plastics. “The packing lists are completed, and a top priority is clearly emerging. We’ll bring a varied selection of sustainability issues involving material solutions as well as services that accompany the issue and with which we support our customers,” says Oliver Zintner, CEO of KRAIBURG TPE. “Our formula for success is based on providing high-quality compounds and reliable, results-oriented services. Our trade-fair appearance will reflect this approach as well. We are incorporating our decades-long experience in new, sustainable solutions, from which everyone will benefit. I’m sure this mixture of services will be appreciated,” Zintner sums up the appearance at the K fair. 
 

Some examples of the K2022 highlights:

Proof of Recyclability: Institute cyclos-HTP, an independent company specialized in assessment and certification, has successfully tested and certified the compatibility of selected TPS materials in the recycling stream for high density polyethylenes (HDPEs) and polypropylenes (PPs) on behalf of KRAIBURG TPE. It has been assumed so far that TPS is not recyclable in the recycling stream: Compatibility in the PP and HDPE stream with products from KRAIBURG TPE has been demonstrated and certified.

RC/UV: With a proportion of postindustrial recycled materials ranging from a minimum of 20% to a maximum of 40%, the series meets the high requirements for OEMs’ automotive exteriors such as weathering resistance and a high surface quality. These product solutions enable suppliers to replace current components with identical components made of recycled materials-based TPE and thus to make a contribution to the circular plastics economy.

Interior PIR TPE: The new product solution contributes to meeting recycling quotas. With a proportion of recycled material of up to 38%, interior PIR TPE provides the automotive market with a reliable and sustainable alternative to standard solutions. The postindustrial recycled plastics used are waste materials derived from other company’s manufacturing of plastic products. KRAIBURG TPE uses them to produce product solutions for sustainable automotive interior applications, among other uses.

Universal PCR TPE: is tailored to meet the requirements for many consumer and industry applications and allows a portion of up to 41% post-consumer recyclate. Compounds are available in natural color as well as in a gray color characteristic for recycled plastics, which can be dyed in many different colors as needed. Another feature worth emphasizing are the mechanics, which are in no way inferior to that of standard solutions.

Visitors to K 2022 can look forward to expert discussions about issues involving the TPE product and service portfolio, which comprises the medical, industrial, automotive and consumer sectors. Current innovations in the field of compounds include thermally conductive TPEs and high resistance TPEs for cosmetics as well as the provision of the carbon footprint (PCF) of compounds. “We are looking forward to meeting customers, prospects and partners and sharing information and ideas face-to-face. Our product range has increased significantly, and I think there is a lot for us to talk about,” says Oliver Zintner.
