Gabriel-Chemie Group, the world champion and the masterbatch solutions for stadium seats and artificial turf in Brazil

The Gabriel-Chemie Group is expanding its activities in the Brazilian market through a workshop on stadium seats and artificial turf in São Paulo

(PresseBox) (Gumpoldskirchen, ) With the support of Paulo Sérgio (Brazilian World Cup Winner 1994, German Bundesliga Champion 2000 and 2001 and Champions League winner 2001) and the Erwin Maack Company, Gabriel-Chemie held a workshop this summer in São Paulo in Brazil on masterbatch solutions for stadium seats and artificial turf.

The workshop took place in the Football Museum of the Pacaembu Football Stadium.

The guests included stadium seat and artificial turf manufacturers, architects, football and sports club managers and other specialists.

The emphasis of the workshops was on the correct use of plastics and pigments for stadium seats and artificial turf as well as their optimal UV protection and flame retardant properties. A film was shown to demonstrate the flame retardant properties and Gabriel-Chemie's references in these markets were discussed.

"Masterbatch solutions for Brazilian sport are very important to us. In view of forthcoming major events such as the FIFA World Cup in 2014 and the Summer Olympics in 2016 we will be intensifying our appearance on the Brazilian market still further", says Group CEO DI Rodolfo Santa Olalla.

Gabriel-Chemie will once again take part this year in the international EXPO ESTÁDIO trade fair, which takes place from 22 to 24 November 2011 in São Paulo.
