Our team will be happy to explainyou about the Exfill® range high-performance mineral based concentrates. Thanksto the excellent dispersion and homogeneity of the Exfill® products, theaddition in a certain application can go as high as 70% of the final plasticpackaging, which significantly helps in reducing the content of petroleum-derivedpolymers while maintaining and enhancing the mechanical properties of thepackaging.

Furthermore we’ll display our newestbusiness unit: Biokomp®. These resins can be processed by conventionalextrusion, cast film, blown, sheet, extrusion coating, and injection moldinglines without extra technological investment. Biokomp® is completelybiodegradable and compostable. These two properties allow a plastic packagingmaterial to be recovered through the organic recycling of solid waste(composting and anaerobic digestion) and are certified by the European standardEN 13432.

Our icing on the cake is calledOkean. The Okean™ range of products is completely biodegradable in water. TheKompuestos team has refined new methods to go that one extra step in order tosecure our rivers and marine life.
