Ultrapolymers Group was founded in October 2002 in Belgium to distribute polymers for major polymer producers across Europe. In the meantime the Ultrapolymers Group has grown to one of the biggest Pan-European polymer distributors.
With offices and warehouses in most of the European countries, Turkey and South Africa, Ultrapolymers established a commercial network with a local presence to serve its customers and suppliers in the best possible way. We offer a comprehensive product portfolio of raw materials covering commodities, engineering plastics, thermoplastic elastomers and synthetic rubbers. We can deliver any quantity from 1 bag to a full truck load.
Ultrapolymers (Lommel, Belgium) has reached a distribution agreement with the Italian compounder Francesco Franceschetti (Nigoline Corte Franca, Italy).
Ultrapolymers can now officially sell the Marfran.Med medical thermoplastic elastomers. The distribution agreement includes Ireland, the UK, the Nordic countries, Belgium and France in its geographical scope.
Francesco Franceschetti Elastomeri s.r.l. is a leader in the production of medical compounds based on thermoplastic elastomer compounds (TPEs/TPOs based on SBS and SEBS) under the trade name MARFRAN.MED®.
MARFRAN.MED® is produced in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 (standard for medical device manufacturing). In addition, each compound is certified according to ISO 10993 (guideline for Biocompatibility Safety Assessment of Medical Devices for the body) and USP Class VI (United States Pharmacopeia standards).
“The addition of the medical TPEs from Francesco Franceschetti is a very important step for Ultrapolymers to complete its solution package for the medical industry” states Ian White, business unit manager, engineering plastics at Ultrapolymers.
