ALBIS supplies sustainable plastics for Dr. BOY´s Live-Show at K 2019
Hamburg, 09/18/2019. Dr. BOY, manufacturer of injection moulding machines from Neustadt-Fernthal, Germany, is planning an extensive live show for his stand at the world's largest plastics trade fair K 2019. The company will spray produce 2-component (2K) ice scrapers, design trays and magnifiers continuously and at high frequency on various machines. The plastic solutions for this demonstration will be supplied by ALBIS PLASTIC.
"We want to offer our visitors something, so they can see for themselves the high quality of our injection moulding machines live," says Michael Kleinebrahm, Head of BOY Application Technology. "At the same time, we want to take responsibility and rely on bio-based plastics. ALBIS products combine the highest quality with sustainability, that convinced us".
CELLIDOR© CP 410-10 BK 32/082 is used for the design trays. CELLIDOR© is a plastic based on cellulose from sustainable, natural sources of raw materials, which ALBIS is compounding. It is characterised by an excellent gloss, a very good depth effect and self-polishing property. The magnifying glass contains CELLIDOR© CP 400-10 CC, which is characterized by high transparency (comparable to PMMA) and a self-polishing surface. ALBIS supplies an ALFATERXL© ECO with Shore A75 hardness as a soft component for the 2K ice scraper (2K with PP/LyondellBasell´s Adstif HA 840 R). It is recommended for this application due to good 2K adhesion on polyolefins in combination with 100% PP recyclate and biobased EPDM.
"The share of our portfolio of products based on renewable raw materials or recyclates is increasing from year to year," says Philip O. Krahn, CEO of ALBIS. "With the decision to use sustainable products, Dr. BOY is setting an example. We are very excited about the cooperation."
