Meet BSEF member companies at K-Show 2016


BSEF members – Albemarle, Chemtura and ICL Group – will participate in the largest international trade fair for plastics and rubber taking place from 19 to 26 October in Dusseldorf, Germany. The companies will showcase their innovative bromine based solutions and their increasingly sustainable product portfolio.

During the 8-day trade fair, you can meet Albemarle team at Stand 6D61, Chemtura at stand E24 and ICL Group at stand 8D44.

With more than 3000 exhibitors and over 218,000 trade visitors, K 2016 is, from far, the preferred place for industry to present its latest technical developments, procedures, and techniques, and future trends.

Side conferences, forum discussion and networking events offer K Show visitors and exhibitors a unique opportunity for business partnership and knowledge sharing.

For Albemarle the “K-Show is the perfect place to showcase our impressive portfolio of fire safety solutions used in the insulation of buildings, electronics, vehicles and electrical wires. Today, plastics molders, wire and cable compounders, and textile manufacturers around the world rely on our products and applications development to add life-saving properties to their materials.”

“Our solutions combine the finest technology and ingredients with the knowledge and know-how of our highly experienced and talented team of operators, scientists and engineers” said the Albemarle representative. He continued saying “Discovering and implementing new and better performance-based sustainable solutions is what motivates all of us. At Albemarle, we think beyond business-as-usual to drive innovations that create lasting value.”

Great Lakes Solutions, a Chemtura business, is “excited to participate at the K show this year”.  “The business continues to invest in sustainable flame retardant technologies such as Emerald Innovation® 3000 for styrenic insulation foams”, they concluded.

Great Lakes Solutions have recently opened a global center of excellence dedicated to flame retardant research and development at Naugatuck, Connecticut, USA. Their brominated flame retardant portfolio now comprises 90 % by volume of polymeric or reactive molecules, which they see as the future.
