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.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
