At the international FAKUMA trade exhibition in Friedrichshafen, Germany, 18 to 20 October 2011, KRAIBURG TPE, the specialist for innovative TPE solutions, will present its latest products for drinking water systems.
At this year's trade fair for plastics processing, the manufacturer of thermoplastic elastomers will launch an exciting new range of products: At stand 5304 in hall B5, visitors will for the first time have the opportunity to examine the compounds of the DW (drinking water) series from KRAIBURG TPE that have been specifically developed to meet the main European drinking water standards. Thanks to its smooth, dirt and limestone repellent surface finish, the product is ideal for use in plumbing installations, offering manufacturers of seals, shower heads and other sanitary fittings real added value.
With its stand at the FAKUMA fair, KRAIBURG TPE emphasises its commitment to the global market - with custom-engineered products and local service. The extensive sales network of the company will soon include new offices in Brazil and India. Since the spring, the KRAIBURG TPE website is now also available in French, while a Portuguese version is to be launched soon. In addition, the company is building two new production lines at its plant in Malaysia.
Die neuen Compounds der DW-Reihe von KRAIBURG TPE erfüllen die wich- tigsten europäischen Trinkwassernormen
TPE now also available for drinking water applications
In Germany, Great Britain, France and many other countries, all materials in contact with drinking water are subject to the most stringent quality standards. The new compounds of the DW series of KRAIBURG TPE have been fully tested and approved for drinking water applications. This opens up new opportunities for our customers, as they can now avail of the advantages of thermoplastic elastomers in their sanitary and drinking water system products. Thanks to their excellent viscosity, TPEs allow for cost-efficient and precise injection moulding and retain their elasticity over time. In addition, the compounds of the DW series meet the drinking water standards even when dyed. With TPEs, there are thus virtually no restrictions when it comes to the design, shape and colour of the end product.
Global expansion brings us closer to our customers
Whether based in Sao Paulo or Mumbai – our customers can rely on local, efficient and friendly KRAIBURG TPE support staff. At the FAKUMA, the company will outline its next steps in relation to its global expansion. At the moment, KRAIBURG TPE is extending its presence in Brazil by launching a Portuguese website and setting up a new sales office. For customers in the French-speaking countries, including North Africa, we now operate a French website. By opening two additional sales offices in India, KRAIBURG TPE will soon operate four sales agencies in this very important market. Last but not least, the company's production plant in Malaysia is in the process of being upgraded with two additional production lines expected to be operational in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
