Bekaert opens the book on its technical innovations and new opportunities in hall 10, booth E62

Summary & download

Bekaert would like to welcome you to our booth at Wire Dusseldorf 2012 to discover our extensive range of wire products and coatings. With a special focus on innovative and environmentally friendly solutions we will demonstrate how you can refine your product to achieve even better outcomes. 

Innovations designed to suit your needs

To keep up with the ever evolving needs of our markets, Bekaert works closely together with our customers. As a result we are able to innovate faster and discover complementary knowledge and skills that create better, stronger, lighter, greener and more sustainable wires in almost endless applications. 
At Wire 2012, we will showcase a fine selection of innovative wire products that are a classic example of our better together-approach. Bezinal® Color coated wire, for example, contributes to a more competitive wiper blade design. Our Bekinox® Color coating for flat and round stainless steel wire creates more opportunities for the architectural world by combining the durability of stainless steel with the benefit of being available in any color your design requires.  
Bekaert also introduces a combined colors wire, a brand-new and unique polymer-coated wire with ink dots printed on the surface. As it is available in a wide range of colors and can be printed with any color to match your design, this wire can be used in a wide range of applications and markets. 

Leadership in technology

To support the development of new coatings and technologies Bekaert invests heavily in R&D. As a result we hold a leading position in many fields of applications with products like medical wire, automotive spring wire, precision profiles and added value services. 
We also continue to improve the features of our existing product range, such as increasing the fatigue properties of our rope wire or developing improved coatings like Bezinal® 3000 to resist highly corrosive environments. 

Contributing to a greener society 

In a time and age we need to safeguard our planet’s resources, Bekaert also invests in creating ecofriendly products such as: our plant-based coating Ecobind®, lead-free steel wheel weights and energy-efficient products like insulated split hooks for construction. 

Wire Düsseldorf is an international platform for experts, specialists, innovators and global market leaders of the wire and cable industry, and Bekaert is a global market leader with a long-standing history of working better together with you. So if you would like to find out more about how we can help you grow, we will be glad to welcome you at booth E62 in hall 10 of the Messe Düsseldorf in Germany, from 26-30 of March.
