Published on 2015-08-28. Author : SpecialChem

VELOX has exhibited at the Fakuma for several years now: this is one of the largest international fairs for the plastics industry and takes place this year from 13 to 17 October in Friedrichshafen, southern Germany. VELOX will be presenting a selection of its current innovative specialty plastics and plastics additives at Booth No. 5001 in Hall B5.

VELOX is among the leading European distributors of specialty materials for the plastics industry. The Hamburg-based company is an established distributor of highly innovative raw materials and provides its customers with an expert, personalized service thanks to its experienced Sales staff.

The VELOX product range covers a comprehensive spectrum of high-performance plastics for technical and medical applications as well as all types of packaging. Alongside these, the company will also be presenting functional fillers, innovative flame retardants, additives for plastics and rubber types, as well as many other innovative products for the plastics sector.

A highlight at this year’s Fakuma 2015 will be VELOX’ presentation of products by its partner PENTAC Polymer GmbH. The company will showcase PENTAC’s new halogen-free flame-retardant grades, which provide excellent fire resistance twinned with outstanding mechanical properties.

VELOX will also present density-reduced, easy-flowing, corrosion-resistant plastics based on polyamide/polyolefin alloys that can be used as improved PA6, or for pipe and profile extrusion. Thanks to their reduced water absorption, these grades are particularly suitable for outdoor use.

Previous developments by PENTAC Polymer GmbH, such as the easy-flowing PA grades combined with innovative solutions for density reductions, were already successfully introduced to the market last year by VELOX.

Due to the high level of interest at last year’s Fakuma, VELOX will once again be presenting the highly efficient ASACLEAN purging compound by Asahi KASEI.

This year VELOX looks forward to sharing Fakuma with leading co-exhibitors such as Lubrizol Advanced Materials, Polyram, SK Chemicals, Asahi Kasei and Völpker, as well as ADVANC3D Materials. ADVANC3D Materials GmbH specializes in the development, production, sales and distribution of 3D printing materials for the additive-manufacturing industry and will be present for the first time at the VELOX booth. Advanc3D Materials distributes SLS powder manufactured by AXALTA (Coathylene® types) and ARKEMA (Orgasol®) and offers its own SLS powder under the brand name AdSint. The company’s ADWIRE® filaments for the FDM process are available in PLA and ABS in all colors.

VELOX Managing Director François Minec is enthusiastic about the company’s participation at the upcoming Fakuma: “VELOX started out over twenty years ago with the sale and distribution of specialty plastics and we have successfully established ourselves in this sector. This makes the Fakuma one of the key fairs for us. Our Product Managers make the most of this outstanding platform for expert exchange in the plastics industry and bring new ideas and projects for discussion every year.”
