FKuR at K 2022

With “Plastics care for Future” at the world’s leading trade fair for plastics and rubber, K’2022, FKuR is once again setting an example for more sustainability in the use of resources. In line with the hot topics of the K “circular economy” and “climate protection”, FKuR will show visitors how they can implement the principles of a sustainable circular economy in their products using renewable raw materials and recycled plastics. From 19.-26.10.2022, FKuR will be underlining what is at the top of its agenda in Düsseldorf in hall 6 at booth E48: The future of plastics must be without climate-damaging greenhouse gas emissions.

Fit for the circular economy of the future? This is how it works!“For FKuR, the circular economy is not just an entertaining trend, it reflects our attitude to life,” explains Patrick Zimmermann, Managing Director of FKuR Kunststoff GmbH. “Benefit from our unique portfolio of sustainable plastics solutions for the circular economy: with our bioplastics, recyclates as well as bio-recyclate hybrids for all processing methods – such as injection moulding, film extrusion, thermoforming and blow moulding – fossil resources can be conserved”.

Plastics care for FutureBio-Flex® is a family of biodegradable and certified compostable plastics based on renewable raw materials. The main applications of Bio-Flex® include a wide range of flexible film applications, such as agricultural, household and hygiene films, but are also used in injection moulded products or thermoformed articles.

Terralene® are bio-compounds based on polyethylene made from renewable raw materials (Bio-PE). All Terralene® granulates are 100% recyclable and can be processed by injection moulding, blow moulding and film extrusion. In addition, the Terralene® portfolio includes natural fibre reinforced grades, as well as bio-based PP compounds and bio-recyclate hybrids.

Green PE is a bio-based polyethylene made from the renewable raw material sugar cane. As a drop-in, Bio-PE is a renewable alternative to fossil polyethylene (PE). This bio-based and 100% recyclable plastic is used primarily in packaging for food and cosmetics as well as in household products, sports articles and toys.

360° approach – everything from a single sourceWith FKuR’s 360° approach, customers receive everything from a single source: solutions are developed together to design plastic products and packaging in such a way that they meet all the requirements of the modern circular economy. This means that FKuR not only provides its customers with trustworthy support in the selection of materialsfor products fit for circular economy but is also available to them at any time during the entire project with its many years of expertise in questions regarding the processing, recycling and marketing of products.

At booth E48 in hall 6, FKuR will show how customers use FKuR bioplastics or recyclates to make their products fit for circular economy and how they use logos and certificates to communicate their sustainable message to consumers while strengthening their brand image. At the booth, visitors will find many successful product examples from a wide range of sectors such as cosmetics, agriculture & horticulture, toys, packaging or household goods.

If you too would like to make your products even more environmentally friendly, visit FKuR at K 2022.
