3rd International Plastics and Rubber Trade Fair for Malaysia

It's less than one month until M-PLAS opens its doors at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and it promises to be the cornerstone event for the plastic and rubber industries in Malaysia for 2007. YB Mr. Ng Lip Yong, Malaysia's Deputy Minister for International Trade and Industry, will officially open M-PLAS on 29 March 2007 in a joint ceremony that will also serve to inaugurate the 12th Term ASEAN Federation of Plastic Industries Conference and the 17th Asia Plastics Forum. At M-PLAS, visitors can expect to see the latest state-of-the-art offerings from 180 exhibiting companies hailing from some 20 countries.

Besides extensive primary processing machinery exhibits, visitors can also expect a strong showing from materials suppliers. Ciba Specialty Chemicals, for instance, will present a new range of additives and colorants that improve the performance and appearance of plastics. These include Ciba IRGACLEAR XT 386, the next generation clarifier for polypropylene and Ciba TINUVIN XT 833 high performance light stabilizer for flexible PVC applications.

ExxonMobil Chemical will be on hand to introduce its Exceed mLLDPE and mVLDPE, Nexxstar resin formulations and ExxonMobil LDPE, LLDPE and HDPE for a variety of packaging applications. Representing DuPont Performance Elastomers (DPE) and Dow Specialty Plastics & Elastomers, Exodus will exhibit products that cater to a wide spectrum of general plastics applications as well as speciality plastics and rubber products manufacturing. These will include adhesives, sealants and coatings, and industrial rubber products.

In auxiliary equipment, Motan's MINICOLOR G Gravimetric Dosing/Mixing Blender blends up to three components: the main material, masterbatch and additive. It is designed for mounting directly on the feed throat of processing machines. The MINICOLOR G has the advantages of auto-calibrating and allowing easy cleaning and fast changing of materials.

Malaysia will continue to shift to high technology and knowledge-intensive activities with high value added content in various industries, especially involving electrical and electronics, petrochemicals, biotechnology, machinery and equipment, aerospace and maritime. The Government will also prepare specific incentives to attract investments, including high quality FDI for manufacturing sector activities that are being promoted. In addition, it will promote Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) with high innovation capabilities to become part of the global supply chain.

M-PLAS will coincide with the 12th Term ASEAN Federation of Plastic Industries (AFPI) Conference and the 17th Asia Plastics Forum (APF). The AFPI Conference will feature industry updates from regional member associations while APF comprises a series of addresses and presentations of timely relevance to the plastics industry.
