Quadrant EPP, Hall 15 stand E33, Agritechnica 2015, Hanover, Germany

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products, the world’s leading manufacturer of semi-finished engineering plastic materials, showcases its broad portfolio of products and solutions for the agricultural industry at this year’s Agritechnica. The event takes place on 8-14 November 2015 in Hanover, Germany.


During the exhibition, Quadrant demonstrates its high performance and robust engineered extensive portfolio of materials solutions for  heavy equipment in agriculture. They enable a longer life cycle, enhanced durability as well as reduced maintenance. Quadrant’s solutions offer flexibility for a wide variety of applications. This capability results in significant cost-savings for operators and asset owners.

Quadrant’s wide range of solutions for the agricultural sector presents proven benefits: they increase productivity, are environmentally friendly and offer optimum safety in use. The company’s materials have high mechanical and impact strength, stiffness and hardness which contribute to a long-lasting performance of the equipment. In addition, customers can choose from more customized solutions. For instance,  all materials maintain key physical performance properties within the typical agriculture working conditions, a quality promise itself for manufacturers and processors working in extreme, hazardous environments. Others enhance abrasion resistance, are low friction coefficient or have good sliding and wear resistance. In addition, most of Quadrant’s materials are available in a wide range of sizes to meet various needs and production requirements.

Chuck Wiedenhoefer, Global Market Segment Manager, Construction / Heavy Equipment comments: “From farm tractors, planting, fertilizing and harvesting machinery to cultivating systems or other parts and attachments, we have seen an increasing demand for plastics in agriculture equipment over the recent years, with the industry now reaching $120 billion. To respond to this worldwide growing interest, engineers at equipment manufacturing companies need high performance wear materials they can rely on. Our customers can choose from a selection of standard formulations as well as customized grades for targeted and extreme applications”

He adds: “Quadrant’s added value is the unique combination of excellent raw materials, state-of-the-art product technology as well as product and market know-how. Our success is built on expertise and broad experience in many applications within the agricultural sector. As a result, our materials often replace critical metal equipment parts in order to extend the time in use and reduce costs during the initial installation and provide the end-user with a performance-enhanced product.”
