KLINGERSIL C-4240 wins the PRIMUS Award 2021
Right after the market launch, KLINGER Dichtungstechnik received the first award for its new KLINGERSIL C-4240 drinking water gasket.
For its most recent product development, the drinking water gasket KLINGERSIL® C-4240, KLINGER Dichtungstechnik received the PRIMUS Award 2021 in the category „gaskets“.
This award is given by the German’s trade journal „Industriearmaturen+Dichtungstechnik“ and the winners have been honored exclusively at the industry event par excellence, the DIAM & DDM 2021, for their most innovative solutions in the categories valves, actuators and gaskets.
Due to stricter requirements of the new Elastomer Guideline of the German Federal Environment Agency and the resulting changed market requirements, a rapid reaction was very important. As a pioneer in the field of research, development and production of industrial sealing material, KLINGER Dichtungstechnik (KDT) in Gumpoldskirchen interpreted the signs of the times correctly and started developing the fibre-reinforced drinking water gasket KLINGERSIL® C-4240.
We are very happy that our latest innovation has received such a positive feedback. Once again it has been shown that KLINGER is at the forefront when it comes to setting new standards.
„Being a product developer you feel very proud if your work and foresight is recognized and valued by the peer community. Thanks and appreciation to all colleagues at KDT who have contributed to this success."
Stephan Piringer, Head of Product Development at KLINGER Dichtungstechnik
„I am happy to be part of an innovative company that has been redefining the standards of sealing technology for the benefit of people for more than 130 years."
Kurt Bussecker, Sales Director at KLINGER Dichtungstechnik
