International Suppliers Fair (IZB): TEPEO® and TEPEO 2® compact foils and foam laminates are halogenfree and completely recyclable
With Yorn® Light, a PVC/PO laminate, Benecke-Kaliko also offers weight-reduced PVC foils. Rigorous use of lighterweight foils can reduce the weight of a vehicle by as much as 2 kg without in any way compromising quality and feel to the touch. This weight reduction cuts fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
