The next K trade fair for the plastics and rubber sector is just around the corner, and materials supplier ELIX Polymers is readying its offering. K 2019 will be held at Düsseldorf, Germany, on October 16-23, and the global ABS solutions provider will be on Booth F30 in Hall 8B to shine the light on its latest innovations.
"We are excited about the opportunity offered by the fair to present our latest material innovations and applications.

- Chemical compliance ABS products and ELIX service for global regulatory requirements;
- High reflective white ABS with improved additive technology;
- Medical pre-coloured ABS with biocompatibility and USP class VI compliance;
- ABS/PC plating grades with very high flow for demanding automotive interior parts and new ABS plating grade for the US market with improved adhesion performance.
