Some of the products being presented at the Plastimagen trade fair include the following:
  • ABS grades with a very low level of emissions and odour, in addition to high heat-resistant ABS for the automotive industry.
  • A generation of ABS grades for chrome-plating, thereby strengthening the company’s position as a pioneer in this market.
  • Grades suitable for contact with food, in applications that require a high level of support and regulatory knowledge.
  • Newly developed, low-friction products for applications in the automotive industry.
In addition to being an excellent manufacturer for important customers throughout the world, ELIX Polymers specialises in producing ABS and SAN polymers, high-performance compounds and polymer mixes, as well as polymer modifiers.
