FKuR Kunststoff GmbHSiemensring 79 47877 Willich Germany

FKuR Kunststoff GmbH

With the slogan "Plastics – made by nature!" FKuR Kunststoff GmbH was incorporated in 2003. In cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, Oberhausen, FKuR has developed a wide range of biodegradable plastics primarily made from renewable resource materials.


Generally, raw bioplastics (starch, PLA, PHA, PBS and others) are not easy to use on conventional plastics processing machinery. Only by smooth compounding processes and special additives mixtures it is possible to process the resulting blends as standard plastics. The FKuR product lines Bio-Flex®, Biograde® and Fibrolon® meet the requirements for smooth processing on conventional plastics processing machines.
