BIO-FED exhibits for the first time at FIP 2022 in Lyon

BIO-FED exhibits for the first…

The Cologne-based company BIO-FED, a branch of AKRO-PLASTIC GmbH and a company of the Feddersen Group, will be exhibiting from 5 to 8 April 2022 at the French plastics trade fair in Hall 6/5.1, Stand D 49. The booth will be a joint booth together with the companies K.D. Feddersen GmbH & Co. KG, Succursale France and FEDDEM GmbH & Co. KG which also belong to the Feddersen Group.

BIO-FED is an expert in the developing and producing biodegradable and/or biobased compounds under the brand name M·VERA®. This grade range consists of biodegradable compounds, most of them are also partially to fully biobased. The French market is therefore particularly promising for the compounder. M·VERA® GP1025 which is predominantly biobased was developed based on biopolyester and for the injection moulding process. In addition to being approved for food contact (EU 10/2011), the grade is also OK compost INDUSTRIAL according to EN 13432. The special surface texture has a mineral appearance.

But BIO-FED also has the right material on offer for applications that only require medium stiffness: M∙VERA® GP1045. It was specially designed for injection moulding applications, consists of renewable raw materials and is home compostable. It is particularly suitable for applications requiring medium stiffness (tensile modulus 2,000 MPa) and can therefore be used for a wide range of household articles, toys, packaging, coffee capsules, etc. This compound consists of almost 100 % renewable raw materials and, according to the company, is ideally suited for the production of rigid objects.

"We see France as a very interesting and emerging market for bioplastics and we are sure that with our products we have the right answer to the current as well as to future bioplastics legislations," explains Dr. Stanislaw Haftka, Sales Director at BIO-FED. The M·VERA® portfolio was also recently expanded with ISCC PLUS and REDcert² sustainable-certified compounds made of biomass-balanced PP.

M·VERA® grades are suitable for many different processing technologies such as blown film, injection moulding, extrusion and thermoforming. Matching sustainable color, black and additive masterbatches can also be provided.
