The NEC will host a live demonstration of how silicone elastomers are used for TV prosthetics
Hall four of Birmingham’s NEC arena will take on a Hollywood feel during Interplas 2014, with a live demonstration highlighting how polymers play a part in some of TV and films’ biggest blockbusters.
On Wednesday, October 1st, polymer distributor, Biesterfeld Petroplas, will host partner company, PS Composites, to show visitors how prosthetics are created using various silicone elastomers from Dow Corning’s ‘Xiameter’ range. This will take place between the hours of 11am-2pm on stand E70.
Visitors heading to the Biesterfeld stand will be able to learn more about the company’s full range of polymers, from standard commodity polyolefin products from Borealis and CP Chem, to more specialist engineering materials, such as K-Resin SBC from CP Chem and Santoprene TPV’s from ExxonMobil.
The Biesterfeld UK sales team will be present over the three days of the show, alongside European Product Managers from Hamburg. Representatives from Borealis, Indorama, LG Chem and CP Chem will also be present. This additional support will provide the Biesterfeld stand with the technical expertise to answer all customer enquiries, says the company.
“Interplas is a great platform for the UK arm of Europe’s largest polymer distributor to showcase our world leading suppliers to the UK market,” commented Guy Payne, Managing Director, Biesterfeld Petroplas. “These include the likes of Borealis, CP Chem, LG Chem, ExxonMobil and DuPont.”
