Meet the new-look Benvic Group at Compounding World Expo

Benvic, Europe’s leader in PVC compounds and ecological biopolymers, will exhibit for the first time at Compounding World EXPO, Essen, Germany. 

Benvic will present its new multi-polymer outlook to the show’s visitors and will also play a full part in the event’s conference programmes. Following a period of expansion and acquisition the Benvic business has regrouped its
2,500 + polymer compounds into four main material streams for the 21st Century.

PVC compounds are the historical basis of the company and the newly-launched ProVinyl range of PVC compounds
will be on show in Essen next month. 

Benvic’s ProVinyl grades will find use in sectors as diverse as packaging, building, electrical and medical. ProVinyl occupies a similar space to engineering polymers in terms of the material’s performance, structure and specification. ProVinyl includes rigid, plasticized and recycled grades and there is a strong commitment to custom-made ProVinyl formulations for sustainable use.

BENVIC’s Xtended Polymers are the 2nd leg of the new structure, providing polyolefin-based polymer technology for the challenges of complex, mission-critical or heavy-duty applications in industrial sectors such as automotive, food packaging or electrical appliancesBenvic’s recent purchase of parts of the Celanese site in Ferrara Italy provides the manufacturing engine for these material grades.

Ferrara, Italy is also the main location for Benvic’s Plantura product line - the third product leg of the company, designing and supplying bio-based and/or compostable polymers for the development of successful eco-designed products and solutions. The Plantura range provides high processability properties which are not so common in such new generation compounds. Plantura materials can be formulated into durable items or else can lead the way in new fields of compostable packaging for consumers and businesses.

Finally, Benvic Medical solutions include all manner of polymer compounds and also medical components such as pipes, tubes, connectors and filters. Benvic offers the medical world a fully integrated and systems-based approach for all its material and product needs.

These four new groupings reflect the fact that Benvic is becoming an increasingly ‘forward integrated’ company – incorporating a variety of plastics processing companies into its core activities in manufacturing polymer compounds.

Benvic is also a supplier of niche materials for specialist product sectors, including medical, bio-polymers, and self-sanitizing polymers, as well creating materials for stringent uses in the construction and electrical industries.

Benvic will be exhibiting at the Compounding World Expo in Essen.
