Elastic, leakproof, adhesive

Exhibitors unanimously reported a variety of specific project queries, intensive negotiations with trade visitors from all over the world and a remarkable number of business transactions, some of which were spontaneous. Apart from machine and plant construction, one particular focal area of interest on the part of visitors concerned that of raw materials and auxiliaries – a fact which Actega DS has also been able to establish at the stand with Eckart. The K was the ideal platform for reaching national and international customers and business partners. With a focus on sealant compounds for food and beverage packaging on the one hand as well as synthetic granulate for the areas of medical technology, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics on the other, particular interest on the part of visitors had been attracted, e.g. in surfaces with special visual, haptic or hygienic properties and applications suitable for large-series production.

With their sealing properties and elasticity, the TPE compounds ProvaMed® are not only suitable as a basis for storage or transport containers – they are also ideal as multi-functional systems, e.g. for exactly-defined doses or seals. Apart from their advanced and complex functions, TPE also offer good adhesive properties for plastics enabling time- and cost-saving multi-component processes ensuring simplified logistics as well as safe, more hygienic products when compared to assembly processes. Furthermore, thermoplastic elastomers can be easily and swiftly dyed any color. TPE compounds guaranteeing good grip even when products are wet and displaying soft-touch qualities can also communicate a positive feeling to consumers and convey a high-quality product character. Thanks to their good spring-back properties, high elasticity and not least their pleasant haptics, ProvaMed®-TPE are predestined for a wealth of applications especially in the medical, pharmaceutical and cosmetics sector.

After the fair is before the fair. The K in Düsseldorf is hardly over yet the next trade fair event is hot on its heels: the Compamed. Actega DS will also be taking part in this trade fair for the first time (Stand D 38 in Hall 8B) and presenting the ProvaMed® compounds for the various process technologies typical in the area of medical technology. The TPE formula are suitable for extrusion and for processing in injection-molding and multi-component injection-molding. The ProvaMed® compounds are sterilisable and characterized by the lowest migration potential, bio-compatibility, safeness from irritations of the mucosal, absence of PVC, phthalates, silicone and latex.
