This was the 31st time Chinaplas has taken place. 2017 brought over 3,000 exhibitors from all over the world. Approximately 26% of the 155,258 visitors were from outside China.
Chinaplas is the largest plastics and rubber trade fair in Asia and widely recognized by the industry as the second most influential exhibition in the world. Its significance is surpassed only by K Fair in Germany.
FARREL POMINI debuted the CPeX™, Laboratory Compact Processor to the Asian Market. This machine represents the latest FARREL POMINI technology in a lab-sized compounder, ideal for lot sizes of 10-30 kg/hr. The CPeX™ is designed for use with masterbatches and compounds of temperature sensitive, highly abrasive materials as well as highly filled or highly pigmented materials requiring intensive mixing while maintaining low processing temperature.
The exhibit also featured pellet displays including, PET with Carbon Black, which is emerging as very important in the Asian Markets, as well as product and corporate presentations and a CP Series II™ Compact Processor product video. There were many positive meetings and a significant level of interest in FARREL POMINI products as well as interest in running laboratory trials in both the US & UK.
During the exhibition, Paul Lloyd, Business Unit Director hosted a technical seminar, “The Advantages of Processing PET Masterbatch Applications on a Continuous Mixer”.
For 2018, Chinaplas will return to Shanghai however to a new venue, the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC).
