VELOX GmbH, one of Europe’s leading solutions providers of raw material specialities for the plastics, composites, rubber and paints & coatings industries, is returning to specialist trade show COMPAMED after several years of absence with its own stand (Hall 8B, Stand L31).
VELOX, along with partners TOPAS and IPC, both first-time exhibitors, will be presenting innovative and highly specialised plastic and compound solutions for the medical and pharmaceuticals industry at COMPAMED from 13 to 16 November.
“COMPAMED has always been a key trade show for the medical plastics sector”, confirms Siobhan Bastiansen, Market Manager Medical Plastics at VELOX. “Over the past editions we have been successful in establishing valuable and long-term contact with customers and suppliers alike. So this year we are returning with two new partners and our own stand.”
TOPAS COC: highly transparent engineering plastics
TOPAS Advanced Polymers is a leading manufacturer of cyclo-olefin copolymers (COC). This highly transparent engineering plastic is ideally suited for pharmaceutical primary packaging as well as medical and diagnostic articles. The material is especially pure, offering excellent barrier protection and outstanding biocompatibility. TOPAS offers a broad selection of application-specific COC grades.
VELOX is the exclusive distributor for TOPAS in Europe, excluding Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Beyond COC, the company will be presenting other specialities from TOPAS’s comprehensive product range at COMPAMED.
IPC: application-specific polymer compounds
IPC (Innovative Polymer Compounds) specialises in manufacturing materials for medical applications. Certified to ISO 13485, the company develops custom compounds for a variety of applications requiring particular purity and quality, such as long-term implants. Plastics processed include PA11/PA12, PPSU, PEKK, PEEK, PLA, PLA/PHA, TPU, ABS/PC ABS, PP, PE and PC. Having represented IPC in the European market for several years, VELOX 2 collaborates with the specialist firm to deliver on-demand solutions even with short lead times and in small quantities.
VELOX’s answer to the latest developments in medical technology
In addition to products from TOPAS and IPC, VELOX’s medical plastics experts will be showcasing a wide variety of thermoplastic polymer specialities as well as a comprehensive range of technical and engineering support services. “Beyond supplying highly specialised plastics solutions, our technical experts get involved very early on in the planning stages for many of our customers”, explains Bastiansen. “The trend is for products to become ever smaller, more sophisticated and more complex. That means engineering expertise and application-specific solutions are key factors.” The company also provides regulatory support, documentation and comprehensive after-sales support.
In addition to TOPAS and IPC, VELOX boasts further reputable partners such as Trinseo, Arkema, Lubrizol and Repsol.
