powder and fibre additives via four side openings. The strand breakage monitoring system uses


infrared technology to provide reliable perfor- mance that is unaffected by steam or water splashes. The company will also show its new dual cleaning brush for faster barrel cleaning during product changes. It says the units, which are custom built to suit the customers’ extruder and are powered by an electric hand tool, are already in use at a number of sites. They are available for machines with screws from 50mm diameter. � www.feddem.com


Finke will present its range of Fibaplast additive masterbatches for laser marking applications, including grades for creating high contrast and coloured effects. Colour laser markings will be shown on extruded postcard-sized HD-PE sheets coloured with various Fibaplast combination masterbatches. The sheets are manufactured by German extrusion specialist CS-Plastik with laser marking carried out at Finke’s laser laboratory. Finke offers laser marking additives for PE, PP and ABS, with grades for a number of other polymers under development. � www.finke-colors.eu


FKuR will show its latest biodegradable injection moulding compound – Bio-Flex S 7514 – plus examples from its range of part bio-based TPE and PP grades.

Disposable cutlery produced in FKuR’s biodegradable Bio-Flex S 7514 compound


Based on PLA, Bio-Flex S 7514 is a biodegrad- able compound with an MFI of 27 (g/10 min), making it easy to process and suitable for use in multi-cavity and long flow length moulds. Its high heat resistance of 110°C (Vicat A) is achieved without using a hot tool, so cycle times are short. The material has a bio-based content of 75% and is available in natural and white. Other products on display include Terraprene, a


range of TPEs with a bio-based content of 40% to 90%. The materials offer similar mechanical properties to fossil fuel-based counterparts and are suitable for 2K injection moulding. Terralene PP is a PP compound with a bio-based carbon content of

Gabriel-Chemie will introduce the first in a series of digital tools designed to make it easier for its customers to communicate – and to satisfy – their colour needs. GABi is a virtual assistant that uses an intelligent search-algorithm to find suitable products based on common colour systems or standardised colour references such as RAL. The system is also able to recognise colours and


propose appropriate products using the X-Rite Color-Eye System via a smartphone camera. The Color-Eye calibration card enables accurate colour measurements to be made on Apple and selected Android phones, removing variation caused by lighting and camera differences. Dosage, tempera- ture stability and light-authenticity are just a few processing parameters that can also be filtered. GABi is the first tool to be launched under Gabriel-Chemie’s “Master of Batch” line. “Master of Batch provides quick digitised access to our masterbatch world,” says Digital Colours Project Manager Lukas Houska. “Customers can quickly and easily select their products to shorten product development and time to market.” Other exhibits include the company’s Colour


Vision No 19 concept, presenting its latest colour and effect ideas in the form of plastic lens plates and surfaces in selected polymers. It will also demon- strate its laser marking additive developments and its halal and vegan masterbatch products. � www.gabriel-chemie.com


Imerys Graphite & Carbon will exhibit its Timrex and Timrex C-Therm graphites for thermal conduc- tivity enhancement and its Ensaco series of carbon blacks for electrically conductive applications. The Timrex and Timrex-Therm graphites are suitable for
