Domo, a sustainable polyamide player, will exhibit at K 2022 in Düsseldorf. This will be the first opportunity for customers to experience the global Technyl polyamide portfolio since the disruption of Covid-19.

Domo will be showcasing how its polyamide-based solutions, along with its expertise and services, will help customers meet their future application requirements. As the partner of choice for engineered materials, Domo will guide visitors through an Xperience path with solutions based on the leading Technyl brand and Domo’s new brand architecture.

In addition, a dedicated sustainability corner will highlight Domo’s ambitious 2030 sustainability targets, with a focus on decarbonization, renewable energy consumption, and customer solutions.

Dedicated solutions for demanding applications

CO2 reduction continues to be a major challenge for the industry and Domo’s low carbon footprint solutions help enable its customers’ carbon reduction ambitions. Recent developments in lightweight metal replacement, thermal management, and eMobility reinforce the global need for sustainable polyamide-based performance solutions. At K 2022, Domo will present new sustainable solutions based on the Technyl 4Earth brand for the automotive sector through dedicated tech seminars and panel discussions.

As a leading and fully integrated polyamide 6 and polyamide 66 solutions provider, Domo will also showcase its offering of chemical intermediates, base polymers, and performance fibers. At the stand, visitors can learn more about the latest Nyleo performance fiber innovations with improved flame retardancy, enhanced biodegradability, and bacteriostatic properties. Domo’s leading brands Domamid and Stabamid provide the engineering plastics, film, fiber, and textile industries with consistently high-quality solutions for better end-product performance.

“We have grown to be the number-two player in Europe for Nylon 6 and 66 with global availability of the well-known Technyl brand and ambitious sustainability targets,” said Yves Bonte, chief executive officer of Domo Chemicals. “We are committed to customers, to our products, and to our planet, creating value for our customers and consumers. At K 2022 we will show customers how we can enable them to achieve high-performing and truly circular solutions,” he added.

Meeting future sustainability needs

As a response to K 2022’s focus on climate and circularity, Domo is highlighting its stronger sustainability targets as the company prioritizes these initiatives in its business model. These include expanding the share of circular products in engineered material sales from 10% today to 20% by 2030 and 30% by 2035. Developing new circular grades and increasing feedstock is closely connected to its CO2 reduction plans. Domo will also present an overview of dissolving technologies, chemical recycling, and recycling from production waste.

“We are the home of excellence for PA6 and PA66 with Technyl,” said Ludovic Tonnerre, chief commercial officer of International Markets. “At K 2022, we will showcase why polyamides remain the best-known material for a wealth of applications, in particular within the automotive sector. Customers will also experience how our MMI predictive simulation digitally supports the implementation of more sustainable and lighter solutions,” he added.

Domo Service Hub – How to accelerate development cycle time

In addition to its innovative and sustainable portfolio of polymers and resins, customers can experience Domo’s service hub. This unique platform enables manufacturers to innovate quickly and keep ahead of the competition in fast-changing markets.

Our suite of interconnected simulation, 3D prototyping, and parts-testing services is designed to help customers push parts performance to new boundaries and speed time to market in dynamic sectors such as automotive, consumer electronics, heating, and cooling.

Visitors can also discover an extended database for the Technyl C range of PA6-GF materials and our latest injection molding simulation database. Domo’s experts will be available to discuss success cases, application simulations, and prototypes. Visitors can experience a virtual lab tour to explore the capabilities of Domo’s applications part testing lab, as well.

“Our integration in polyamide 6 and polyamide 66, our expertise from chemical intermediates to engineered materials, and our delivery promise translate into better solutions and better-customized products,” said Philippe Guérineau, chief commercial officer EU & Europe Export. “Our application experts at the booth will offer reliable and high-quality technical expertise, practical guidance, and R&D support.”

Circularise – Share insights, not data

Working towards a circular economy, Domo was an early supporter of Circularise, a start-up that uses blockchain technology for better traceability of plastics across the value chain. Domo believes that being able to trace the origin of all raw materials is essential to ensuring that materials can be reused or recycled. At the Domo pavilion, visitors will experience over 100 m2 of Circularise-based innovations and meet with blockchain experts.

“We believe that better data transparency across the entire value chain is necessary to truly realize a circular economy,” said Jordi de Vos, Circularise co-founder. “Our blockchain technology enables traceable, transparent, and circular supply chains, which has become more important than ever. Domo has helped us develop our first iteration of the platform tailored for the plastics industry. We look forward to our joint booth and panel presentations at the pavilion,” he added.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
