K2016 The Countdown Begins

Wells Plastics Limited are excited to confirm that we will indeed be exhibiting at the renown K Trade Fair between the 19th and 26th this October in Hall 5 Stand A26.

Known as the worlds’ no.1 trade fair for plastics and rubber we are looking forward to meeting and greeting a huge turnout of attendees from across the globe.

We are sure to be exhibiting alongside a diverse array of fellow plastic industry professionals and see the K Trade Fair as the perfect setting to showcase our extensive range of value adding additive masterbatch and compound solutions for plastics processing.

One such additive is our latest advance in the field of oxo-biodegradable technology – for Flexible films and laminates for which Wells were the proud winners of the Sentinel Science In Business Award. It is generally agreed that plastics based flexible packaging is the optimum packaging for many food and non-food products alike.

Currently however, all of these films are non-biodegradable and non-recyclable, and therefore careless disposal of this packaging creates litter, which can last for many years in the open environment. As such Wells decided to develop oxo-biodegradable technology for this material and application and following a three year development programme, a new grade of has been successfully formulated and tested to internationally recognised standards at independent laboratories, demonstrating the oxo-biodegradation of PET film.

Wells are the only company in the world to offer an oxo-biodegradable additive formulated specifically for PET films and have unrivalled supporting data on its performance and functionality.

The K Trade Fair takes place every 3 years and remains the largest international trade fair for plastics and rubber, thought to guarantee the future success for all those involved. During the last show in 2013 the K Trade Fair saw 218,000 trade visitors from over 120 countries and for decades has been the preferred place for the leading raw material producers, semi-finished product suppliers and machinery manufacturers to both show and experience the latest procedures, techniques, and technical developments in the industry.

This is a great opportunity to come and meet our team, discuss your processing problems, and see what we have to offer, find us in Hall 5, stand A 26 if you only have a short time to visit why not contact us in advance to set up a meeting!
