Happy Birthday flamex®- 20th Anniversary of the Original | more >>>


The firm of PAPUREX was founded as a partnership by Mr. Werner Büchner in the year 1977.

At that time, PAPUREX still produced polyamide and polyurethane tubing, and also processed Teflon tubing. These origins are still evident today in the name of the firm of PAPUREX:

  • PA = Polyamide
  • PUR = Polyurethane
  • EX = Extrusion

In the year of its founding, the company processed 500 kg of polyurethane per month. This tubing was produced exclusively from polyurethane on a polyester basis. The manufacturing consisted of one production line.

In the year 1981, the firm of PAPUREX W. Büchner GmbH was founded, and the focus placed on the production of polyurethane tubing.

Soon after, in the year 1983, a second production line was acquired, which was later to be followed by three more in 1987, 2000 and 2004.

In the year 2006 we celebrated our 25th Anniversary.

Since the beginning of 2008, we have been operating a 3-shift system. The maximum possible capacity is currently over three tonnes of various polyurethane materials per day.
