Particularly products such as AluFlex® and SmartFlex® led to extensive contact with both existing and potential customers. Under the name AluFlex®, Bischof + Klein offers packaging solutions for products which are highly sensitive to moisture or oxygen or also those with intensive odours. Specifically co-ordinated barrier films are used in this case. The SmartFlex® stretch hood film is both elastic and stable at the same time. These properties also enable it to protect bulky goods during transportation and storage. Queries concerning surface protection films were also forthcoming from interested customers. Glass and mirrors, plastic sheeting, furniture, vehicles, screens – surface protection films from Lengerich can be found virtually everywhere where sensitive surfaces require protection during storage, transportation or processing.
Around 2,600 exhibitors, including all of the industry's important machine manufacturers and raw material producers, attracted visitors from around the world to Shanghai. Around 20 percent of attendees had travelled to the trade fair from outside of China. B+K was therefore able to extend and strengthen its ties with existing customers from countries such as Korea, Singapore or Turkey.
