France Pavilion to host 70 companies at K 2010 in Düsseldorf

09.09.2010
The France Pavilion organised by UBIFRANCE at K 2010 will showcase the products and technologies of 70 French companies. The triennial trade fair, which is the world’s largest international trade show dedicated to the plastics-and-rubber industries, will take place from 27 October to 3 November of this year, in Düsseldorf.

K 2010, the International Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber, will take place in Düsseldorf (in Germany) from 27 October to 3 November 2010. Located in Halls 1, 3, 5 and 8a, The French Pavilion is organized in partnership with industry associations recognized for their skills and expertise.

The France Pavilion, organized by UBIFRANCE, the French agency for international business development, in charge of export support, will host 70 companies representing the entire plastics manufacturing industry, from raw materials and specialist equipment to finished products. The 70 exhibitors on the France Pavilion represent all sectors of the plastics-and-rubber industry and their exhibits will be distributed according to the participating company’s business activity.

Once more, this year, the France Pavilion will host the Matériautech — a tool for creating ideas that invites users on a ‘sensory voyage’ through the world of plastics. It will feature all that is needed for selecting the right material, with full control over the user’s impressions of the product, i.e. colours, effects, transparency, feel, smell, sound, etc. The Matériautech gives rise to productive exchanges between creators seeking information on plastics and industrialists keen to promote their products.

With annual sales of plastics-and-rubber products amounting to €30 billion, France ranks among the world’s major players in the sector. Indeed, France is among the top five plastics exporting countries worldwide. In Europe, France is in second place behind Germany, and Germany is France’s leading commercial partner in this sector. France’s 3,750 companies in the sector export €6.7 billion worth of goods annually.

An estimated 3,000 companies will take part in the K 2010 exhibition in Düsseldorf, across 19 exhibition halls covering a surface area of over 160,000 square metres. Manufacturers of raw materials and finished goods, as well as builders and users of production machinery in the plastics-and-rubber sector, come to K 2010 because it represents a world-class forum for the industry. At least 200,000 industry visitors from all over the world are expected to attend K 2010 in order to gather information on offerings in the industry worldwide, and find out about the latest trends.

As a true global hub for innovation, K 2010 is the trade event offering the widest possible range of ideas and products in the plastics-and-rubber industry, all revolving around customers’ centres of interest and the evolution of their needs and expectations. Even though the materials are widely known and used, the plastics industry is a dynamic and innovative one. It is characterized by a constant stream of new products, new processes and new applications, as well as by increasingly intense competition.

A full list of the 70 French companies on the France Pavilion at K 2010 is provided below. Additional information on specific companies on the French Pavilion can be provided on request. For further information, please click here.

About K 2010

Messe Düsseldorf GmbH organises the trade fair, which takes place every three years. It is the leading trade show of its kind in Europe, and in the world, and it covers the following sectors: raw materials; semi-finished products, technical parts and reinforced plastics; machinery and equipment for the plastics-and-rubber industries; and, finally, services for the plastics-and-rubber industries.

At the K 2010 trade fair in Düsseldorf (in western Germany), from 27 October to 3 November 2010, UBIFRANCE will be in charge of the France Pavilion (located in Halls 1, 3, 5 and 8a), which will host 70 French companies in the plastics-and-rubber sector.

K 2010 — in German, Internationale Messe Kunststoff + Kautschuk — will be held in the Düsseldorf Fairgrounds (Halls 1 to 17). The trade show will be open daily from 10.00am to 6.30pm.

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
