Protection for high-gloss
The trade fair team returned to Lengerich from Cologne with a variety of promising enquiries. "Our protection film for high-gloss surfaces, in particular, generated major interest", reported Nando Ibershoff. In view of the trend towards high-gloss painted kitchen fronts, the B+K sales employee stated: "Our extremely high-quality protection films are in great demand here."
Around 53,000 visitors from 148 countries attended the trade fair, with around 70 percent coming from abroad. The “interzum” particularly saw a significant rise in the number of guests from China, the USA, the United Kingdom, Russia, Poland and Turkey.
The 1,512 exhibitors from 62 countries presented technical and design innovations. A trend towards the reduced use of materials with constant quality was prevalent throughout. Resource efficiency also plays a major role at B+K. The films are thinner and are specifically given characteristics which correspond precisely to their function. B+K produces self-adhesive films and glue-free adhesive films for both smooth and structured furniture surfaces. If necessary, they can be stretched and are heat-resistant so that they also protect surfaces during further processing, e.g. during thermal forming. An important aspect, and one which is a matter of course for B+K: all films can subsequently be removed without leaving residues behind.
