High performance elastomers producer sets out to inform, illustrate and inspire
ARLANXEO, a global leader in performance elastomers, will highlight how its wide range of High Performance Elastomers can be found everywhere during K 2016. As a recently established joint venture between LANXESS and Saudi Aramco, this will be ARLANXEO's first time exhibiting at the K-show, reaching out to a truly international audience.

Visitors to the 246 m² ARLANXEO booth (Hall 6 / C78) will be able to see how various ARLANXEO products address the challenges of everyday life. Amongst the various displays are three separately themed islands focusing on:

- Modification, with emphasis on PVC granules modified with Levapren to provide softness together with improved heat stability and color stability compared to standard products. And extruded profiles in Levapren PXL with exceptional flow, superior green strength and increased creep resistance.
- Green, which highlights energy cables with halogen-free flame retardant Levapren sheathing for use in wind turbine nacelles, helps to protect large investments against the damage caused by fire.
- Sports & leisure shows a diving suit incorporating Baypren chroroprene rubber (CR) and Levapren ethylene-vinyl acetate synthetic rubber (EVM) foam that keeps the body warm even in ice-cold water and is resistant to salt water and UV rays. And Alethic body protection pads in Levapren that provide an ideal mix of cushioning and grip, protection and stability.
- Also on this show will be the driving belt of an eBike, made with Therban and offering excellent elasticity and durability without maintenance or greasing.

In addition, applications in such areas as flooring, seals for diverse purposes, and automotive components will be highlighted. ARLANXEO will also use the K-show to present Keltan ECO, the world's first bio-based EPDM.

ARLANXEO CEO Jan Paul de Vries says: “At this occasion, our first time at the K-show, we want to highlight the innovative technological strength of our company which helps to create products that are part of our daily lives all around the world.”
