Complimentary Articles of Kunststoffe international 8

In her latest editorial Kunststoffe editor Franziska Gründel casts a light on the fact that plastics producing companies keep splitting up. For a good decade, some raw materials manufacturers have been streamlining their multi-grade portfolios into specialized product ranges. Almost as a counter trend, machinery and plant manufacturers are acquiring strategically interesting companies with key technologies.

The Special in this issue focuses on the economic and technological situation the major players of the plastics industry find themselves in before K 2016. We tell you which companies were ready to disclose their news and novelties in advance of the trade show and which prefer to keep them secret, waiting to present them at K 2016. Among the articles we offer you free of charge is a report of a round table talk where executives of important associations took a look at the industry in advance of the trade show. Another article highlights how material producers are dealing with global developments and challenges. In an article we offer you with the assistance of RadiciGroup SpA the development of a new polyamide 6.10 grades aimed for usage in media resistant pipe system in the automotive industry is described.
