Increasing Presence

22. May 2014

Bischof + Klein recently presented its industrial packaging and technical film range at the CHINAPLAS in Shanghai.

The company is increasing its presence in Asia. Numerous discussions with business partners and potential customers from around the region bore witness to the great interest in flexible packaging and surface protection films from B+K.

The trade fair enticed around 130,370 visitors from 143 countries to Shanghai. They came from throughout China as well as Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, etc., and were able to obtain information on new products, new technologies and trends from over 3,000 exhibitors. Bischof + Klein was in attendance with five staff members including Jackie Zhu, sales employee at B+K Shanghai, and Jack Ho, who has been working for B+K Asia in Singapore for a number of years. Christine Drögsler (Industrial Packaging division), Heiko Schumacher and Nando Ibershoff (Technical Films division) had travelled there from Germany.

They presented individually tailored solutions for protecting surfaces (furniture, glass, plastic sheeting, metals, PVC window profiles, optical applications). B+K develops and produces self-adhesive and self-adhering surface protection films for virtually all applications. In the industrial packaging segment, PE valve sacks and packaging solutions with barrier protection encountered particularly lively interest.

The AluFlex® product range for moisture- and oxygen-sensitive or odour-intensive products stands as an example of the successful research and development work undertaken by family-owned company Bischof + Klein. Thanks to the use of a laminate consisting of aluminium, metallised polyester or EVOH (ethylene-vinyl alcohol), the oxygen and water vapour barrier is optimally adapted to the product's individual requirements. A reduction in film thickness and improved flatness properties lead to lower unit packaging costs as well as transportation and storage costs. The volume of waste and the effort required for disposal are minimised. The increased linear length of the reels and the related, lower number of reel replacements additionally lead to an improvement in sack filling machine performance.
