Chinaplas Preview Plentiful New Elements at CHINAPLAS 2013 Photo: (iStockphoto / jacus) Moving forward to the 27th edition, Chinaplas (the 27th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries) not only continues to hit the new record on the show scale, but also brings in many new elements. In order to allow visitors to have sufficient time for procurement and technological exchange, the show period of Chinaplas 2013 will be extended to four whole days, staging from May 20 to 23, 2013 at China Import & Export Fair Complex, Pazhou, Guangzhou, China. The setup of theme zones is always a good indicator of the market needs. Thus Chinaplas 2013 will again feature a Bioplastics Zone in Hall 12.2. If you visit Chinaplas make sure to visit the booth of bioplastics MAGAZINE in Hall 12.2 (booth 12.2N51). In the following you will find a some short reports of some of the 33 exhibitors in the Bioplastics Zone, including a floorplan of hall 12.2.

After the successful launch of the modified heat resistant resin REVODE213S in 2012, Hisun will now launch a new heat resistance modified PLA resin named REVODE219C. REVODE219C is a kind of translucent resin which offers excellent shock and heat resistance. It was specially designed for blowmoulded bottles (such as feeding bottles etc), space cups, and other home supplies. In terms of cost, technical properties, food contact safety and many other characteristics, products made from Revode219C are better than those made from polycarbonate (PC) in the current market. REVODE219C will be presented to bioplastic clients at Chinaplas 2013 www.hisunpharm.com 12.2L53 NatureWorks NatureWorks, a leader in the bio-plastics market with its Ingeo biopolymers derived from plants, will continue to exhibit in the Bioplastics Zone at Chinaplas 2013 further to the resounding success of its presence in the last two years.
