SAO PAULO, Brazil -- The Baerlocher group of companies presents its products including its innovative Ca-based stabilizers at the Feiplastic 2015.

With its presence at the fair, the company shows its long-term commitment to the South American market.

“Brazil represents 50% of the South American plastic consumption, the Feiplastic 2015 is the perfect opportunity to meet our existing customers and to establish business with new customers,” says Juarez da Silva Costa, General Manager of Baerlocher do Brasil. “Due to lower investments in infrastructure and housing also the PVC industry is facing some challenges. Baerlocher enables the plastic producers to stay competitive by offering innovative and more ecological friendly solutions.” The focus of Baerlocher´s presentation at the show is on rigid and plasticized PVC stabilizers. With its leading role in the transition from conventional to Ca-based stabilizers, Baerlocher is perfectly positioned in these segments.

“In the plasticized field, Baerlocher offers additives to improve the indoor air quality for products like flooring and wall covering as well as low-fogging products for the automotive industry. Baerlocher provides new products for emerging applications like C-& M-PVC pipes. In this context we have invested in a large size twin screw lab extruder to perfectly simulate real processing conditions in our laboratory to offer our customers a significantly better technical service,” outlines Rainer Grasmück, Head SBU PVC Additives India & Americas.
