K 2016 in Düsseldorf - A look back

For the first time, the CHT Group was present at K 2016 in Düsseldorf, a trade fair that only takes place every three years. In 2016, 230,000 trade visitors from over 100 countries took part.

Together with 3,529 exhibitors, the business unit Silicone Elastomers and the division Recycling were able to present to the international visitors the existing product portfolio and interesting new products.

For the business unit Silicone Elastomers, the K in Düsseldorf was an important event platform for the introduction of the newly developed LSR/LIM range in a - for the CHT Group - new industrial environment.

The recycling of plastics has been, and will continue to be, a globally important topic. Many international companies from the recycling sector were represented at the exhibition in order to inform visitors about the mechanical recycling of plastics (PET, HDPE, PP, etc.). For this part of plastics recycling, CHT showed new and innovative process chemicals, such as cleaning additives, flotation aids and defoamers.

Due to the positive feedback and a good number of contacts the participation in K 2016 can be seen as a success for the CHT Group.
