ALBIS to Present Bio-based Thermoplastics Products and Solutions at K 2019The Hamburg-based company, ALBIS will be presenting a variety of high-performance plastics, compound solutions and masterbatches at the international trade fair K 2019.

ALIBIS will be showcasing products and exhibits by long-term partners that include BASF, Covestro, INEOS Styrolution, LANXESS, LyondellBasell, EASTMAN and Solvay, as well as its own collection of complimentary ALBIS branded products.

Recycling and Bio-Based Products Highlights at the Show

The key highlights are LyondellBasell´s Circulen and Circulen Plus product families. They are low density bio-based polypropylene and polyethylene with renewable hydrocarbon bases, recovered from sustainable bio-based resources, such as used and residual oils. These are approved for use in the manufacture of food packaging.

"Our customers want us to tell them how they can make their applications greener and more sustainable, without compromising on quality," says Philip O. Krahn, ALBIS CEO. "We have, therefore, increased the proportion of recycled and bio-based products in our range."

Quality Circular Polymers (QCP™) post-consumer recycling products are part of LyondellBasell's existing product families, Moplen® PP and Hostalen® PE, and are oriented towards applications, including cosmetics and suitcases.

Whilst QCP products are made predominantly from packaging that has reached the end of its lifecycle, MGG Polymers products are made from PC+ABS, ABS, HIPS and PP granules that generally come from processed electrical and electronic waste (WEEE). In contrast, MBA Polymers UK produces post-consumer ABS, PP and HDPE from plastics rich shredder residue from recovered vehicles.

Carbon Fiber-Based Compounds Products at Display

Another trade fair highlight will be the carbon fiber-based compounds products by ALBIS subsidiary WIPAG. WIC-PP and WIC-PA products feature rigidity, pressure and tensile strength, yet have low density, which saves a great deal of weight, and therefore expense, compared to highly filled fiberglass-reinforced PA types - ideal for all types of lightweight construction. WIPAG has developed the recycling technology required and scaled it up in order to be able to produce WIC compounds from this resource base.

Besides focusing on the technical features of its products, ALBIS is also emphasizing service aspects like consistent formulas, dedicated change management, and regulatory support, for example as regards biological evaluations of materials.

ALBIS will be present in Hall 8-B3/stand A61 at the trade fair in Germany from October 16 to 23, 2019.
