Albis Acquires Wipag

Effective January 2018 Albis Plastic GmbH will acquire Wipag Group, specialists in processing and production of carbon fiber compounds for injection molding, with sites in Neuburg (Donau), and Gardelegen (both in Germany).

With this acquisition Albis, distributor and compounder of technical thermoplastics, has invested further into its recycling activities. Wipag's innovative recycling technology takes waste carbon fiber, which comes mostly from the automotive industry, and processes it into reinforced carbon fiber compounds. In future, Albis will offer polypropylene and polyamide carbon fibre filled compounds, which offer excellent mechanical properties and low density. With PPCF compounds a significant weight and cost advantage compared with highly-filled, glass-fiber-reinforced PA types can be achieved, providing potential for exploitation of lightweighting requirements.

Wipag has years of experience in the closed-loop recycling business.Closed-loop describes techniques such as the composite separation of instrument panels or the removal of paint from bumpers as part of the materials recycling process. These highly-developed closed-loop processes provide an ideal opportunity for Eco-friendly production.

Furthermore, Wipag also receives high-quality recyclable PP from post-industrial and post-consumer applications, from various sources, for use in its process. According to Albis, these open-loop activities provide an excellent platform for their Altech Eco PP compounds and expand their range of high quality Near-to-Prime Recycling Compounds, which are already used in numerous applications for the automotive industry.
