REPI - COLOUR EXPLORERS
REPI at Drinktec 2017 – Hall A4 Stand 500
It’s time for Drinktec again, after four years that have passed quickly and positively for REPI, multinational producer of liquid colours and additives for plastics, with a focus on the plastic packaging applications.
Located at the heart of the PetPoint section, REPI will welcome visitors to present its latest developments in liquid solutions for the packaging industry.
Liquid colours acting as a barrier to extend the product shelf life, speciality additives to protect sauces, juices, dairy products from UV and visible light damage and analysis instruments to help packaging producers put safe and reliable containers on the market.
Its high performance barrier line for long life (UHT and ESL) dairy product applications allow monolayer containers to extend products’ shelf life by providing the necessary protection from UV and light degradation.
Custom made UV additive ranges, formulated to meet customers’ requirements enable them to over specified and expensive solutions, resulting in cost efficient packaging and providing exactly the right protection every time.
REPI will also present its Light Meter upgraded version. In the perspective of offering an all-round solution rather than just a product, REPI has been working over the years next to its customers building ties with them as partners. In this scenario, not only is the colour and additive formulation important, but also the availability of accurate dosing and analysis instruments to rely on for measuring the real presence and properties of the colour/additive in the final packaging. This is what the Light Meter is able to offer, and its latest version promises to offer the user dramatic advantages in this direction.
The bright white booth will function as a meeting point where its “Colour Explorers” Team will welcome guests, to discuss new projects and perform live demonstrations of instruments and equipment.
REPI is attending K2016 with a new image and communication approach, in line with the company’s expansion strategy.
With the claim “Colour Explorers”, the company’s team will guide visitors on the REPI stand through a unique sensorial experience of colour gradations blending into a total white look, the “non-colour” for excellence, underlining the company’s capability to offer every solution in its core business. Video projections and multimedia contents dominate the space and tell the history of the company, as well as outlining the portfolio of products, testing and services available to customers. Meeting rooms are complemented by a cosy lounge area, offering the opportunity for business meetings as well as public relations.
In its 43 years of business, REPI has explored the world of colours tirelessly, pioneering the use of liquids for plastics and building ties with customers and partners which are based on trust and exchange of knowledge, the key to turning clever ideas into concrete solutions, thus offering the market exactly what it is looking for.
REPI’s intuition to specialise in liquids was revealed to be even more winning, allowing it to reach a leading position in the field of colourants and additives for plastics. The company is determined to further stimulate the growth trend experienced in the last years by strongly focusing on innovation on the chemical side and by perfecting its attention for quality, which is associated with “Made in Italy” all over the world.
