Composite sector: Bodo Möller Chemie at the JEC Forum DACH in Frankfurt am Main
In collaboration with the AVK – Industrievereinigung Verstärkte Kunststoffe e.V. – the JEC Group has organized the JEC Forum DACH. Every year, the event should take place in another place in Germany, Austria or Switzerland and, apart from the JEC Paris, become the meeting place of the composite industry sector. The kick-off is supported by the Offenbach-based Bodo Möller Chemie Group as sponsor, which additionally presents the portfolio related to the complete composites value-added chain. The first event in the new format takes place at the Messe Frankfurt “FORUM” building in Frankfurt am Main on November 23 and 24, 2021. The Bodo Möller Group will be present there with a team of experts (booth B8) and keep expanding the offering as one-stop-shop for specialty chemicals with a new service. “We are seeing a growing demand for special process development services tailored to the needs of the manufacturers. With customized cutting service for glass fiber fabric, we can deliver the material in the requested lengths. In addition, the one-stop-shop concept allows our customers to procure all materials – from mattes all the way to resin, adhesive and coating – and they benefit from getting them from one single source and from our know-how,” says Frank Haug, Chairman of the Board of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group.
The company is considered an expert for composite and tooling materials and, apart from the delivery program ranging from formulated epoxy resin systems, fiber reinforcements, block materials, mold construction silicones, cast resins, laminating resins and gel coats, also offers coupling layers and adhesives for composite bondings. Textiles are ordered from the specialist Porcher Industries, other materials from leading manufacturers like Huntsman or DuPont. With Ureol®, the Bodo Möller Group produces its own block material. The own logistics of the specialty chemicals company supports companies through predictable delivery promises.
During the JEC Forum DACH, the business meetings platform gives the opportunity to make appointments in advance with the application experts of the exhibitors. The Bodo Möller Group will be present with a complete team available for conversations and providing advice.
Supporting the value-added chain
The company headquartered in Offenbach with branches throughout the world recognized the signs early and, in addition to its extensive product range, also incorporated its know-how in sales & distribution. For a long time, customers have been receiving more than just basic materials, but also comprehensive services related to development and production. In this way, solutions for all common composite production processes are offered not only to the automotive and commercial vehicle production sectors, for example, but also for the rail, aerospace, wind energy, marine, sports and leisure industries. The full offering of composite and tooling materials supports the value-added chain, especially because the company operates its own broadly certified laboratory, thereby providing additional valuable services. The Bodo Möller Chemie Group is certified according to the international standard DIN EN 9120 for the aviation industry and the highest safety classes A1/S1, according to DIN 6701-2 for the adhesive bonding of rail vehicles and their parts, and to DIN 2304-1 for the quality requirements for adhesive processes. After the sector meeting in Frankfurt, the composite sector prepares for the international trade fair JEC World 2022, which will take place in Paris from March 8 to 10.
