Baerlocher exhibits at Interplast 2014 in Brazil (englische Version)

Americana (Brazil), August 7, 2014 – The Baerlocher group of companies presents its products including its innovative Ca-based stabilizers at the Interplast 2014. The fair, a premier platform for the plastics industry in Brazil, is taking place in Joinville (Brazil) from August 18-22.

Baerlocher is the globally leading supplier of additives for the PVC industry in the region. With its presence at the fair, the company shows its long-term commitment to the Brazilian market.

“As many of the largest plastics producers are located in the south of Brazil, the Interplast 2014 is the perfect opportunity to meet our existing customers and to establish business with new customers,” says Juarez da Silva Costa, General Manager of Baerlocher do Brasil. “The PVC industry is facing some challenges lately in conventional applications. In order to overcome this situation, Baerlocher offers innovative solutions for emerging applications like PVC roofing and for the design of PVC houses. Our innovative and cost-effective solutions enable the plastic producers to stay competitive.”

The focus of Baerlocher´s presentation at the show is on rigid PVC such as for pipes and profiles. With its leading role in the transition from conventional to Ca-based stabilizers, Baerlocher is perfectly positioned in these segments.

“In the plasticized field, new fashion designers of PVC shoes need high-quality stabilizers to guarantee transparency and durability. Baerlocher’s star product for this application is Baerostab CZ-1245,” outlines Rainer Grasmück, Head SBU PVC Additives Asia & Americas.
