Sustainable freshness with solid silicone rubber
See for yourself the benefits of automated injection molding and heat-curing, mass-balanced silicone rubber compounds at K 2022 in Düsseldorf from October 19 to 26. As part of a live demonstration, we will present a lemon juicer as the first-ever example of a food-grade silicone product made from plant-based methanol, i.e., methanol that has not been derived from fossil resources.
Polymers Made from Renewable Raw Materials
Finnish chemical company Kiilto aims to be net zero by as early as 2028. So, it showed a great deal of interest when WACKER experts introduced Kiilto to binders that, mathematically, had 100 percent of the fossil raw materials replaced by certified renewable raw materials like biomass during production.
“Thinking Beyond” at K2022
What gives electric vehicle batteries the power they need? What can we do to save fossil resources and how do we improve the properties of existing materials even more? Let’s talk about all of that at the WACKER booth at K2022 – the International Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber, October 19 – 26, 2022, in Düsseldorf.
