GRAFE for the first time at the Equiplast in Barcelona

 

The participation at the Spanish plastics and rubber trade fair is an opportunity for the sales Team of the GRAFE-Group to present themselves on an international platform. For the first time, GRAFE takes part as an exhibitor at the Equiplast in Barcelona. This is the next step to increase the territorial expansion of the Iberian market since Constanti Ruiz Daura assumed responsibility for this area in 2015.

 

From 2 – 6 October the Equiplast will take place for the 18th time in Barcelona. At the international exhibition for the plastic and rubber industry in addition to the GRAFE-Group, more than 450 exhibitors will present their latest developments and innovations. Constanti Ruiz Daura, representative for the Iberian and Johannes Grau, Sales Manager Export, are looking forward to present the latest developments and the newest color preview of the GRAFE-Group.

On the hunt for colors with GRAFE. „The Pursuit of Colors“ is the motto of this year’s presentation of the 2018 trend colors by the GRAFE Design Center. Always a creative highlight, the orchestration of this year’s color preview features the well-known Thuringian poetry slammer AIDA. He has created an exciting adventure story in twelve chapters that will take the reader month for month on a journey around the world. A calendar illustrates the trend colors and embodies the visualized accompaniment to the truly colorful story. On the website www.pursuit-of-colors.com exclusive chapters will be unlocked every month by solving twelve puzzles which also offer the chance to discover a great treasure in form of a fabulous journey.

The plastic specialist GRAFE also presents innovative ideas for efficient and high-quality plastic applications for automobiles. Their flexibility, functionality and light weight enable them to fulfill varying requirements while satisfying customer-specific needs regarding design and comfort in car interiors and exteriors. Even for relatively small amounts of only 100 kg per color in a series, the GRAFE Group can develop all compounds with the desired properties in any color. GRAFE is not only a manufacturer of customized and application-specific masterbatches, it is just as active in the development and production of compounds.

Another highlight is the impressive Black³. Black, darker than black, so ultrablack as never before. The new, extreme depth of color is able to create a “piano black finish” in polypropylene and polyethylene. As a leading color specialist, GRAFE has the expertise to adjust the black intensity to the wishes of its customers.

The GRAFE MattAge - another development presented for the first time at the Equiplast - is a new matting agent with which one glossy and matt surface effects can be realized in a single tool. The plastic specialist for complete solutions meets the increasing demands on durable, scratch-resistant surfaces and develops combinations of raw material that can be elegantly displayed in modern, matte optics. Furthermore the GRAFE Group has developed new color additives. These masterbatches require lower dosing and result in improved UV stabilization for automotive applications using ABS polymers.
