Henkel Race Day 2008 – a joyful festival for all the family  

Henkel Race Day took place at the Düsseldorf Grafenberg racing course on Sunday, August 3, 2008. This year saw more visitors than ever before, attracted by the 150th running of the “Preis der Diana” German Oaks. There were 22,000 spectators, all keen to enjoy every minute of the exciting racing event, augmented by the wide range of attractions provided at this most pictorial of sporting venues. The winner of the big race was Rosenreihe of the Wittekindshof yard owned by Dortmund entrepreneur Hans-Hugo Miebach – in a finish of unbelievable tension and excitement. For only in the final few meters of the 2,200 meters distance was top jockey Andrasch Starke able to secure victory after coming from an almost hopeless position just 200 meters out from the post.

Plasticizer-free paper and packaging adhesives from Henkel 

Diisobutyl phthalate (DiBP), a plasticizer frequently used until now in adhesives for the paper converting industry, is suspected of being harmful to health. The German manufacturers and processors of paper, board and cardboard have therefore undertaken to stop using products containing DiBP. To protect consumers in the long term, Henkel has now come up with a solution – the Adhesin A 78 Series, a new generation of plasticizer-free adhesives formulations for all applications in the paper and packaging industry.

Why perfection begins at 20°C 

Better for the laundry, better for the environment – that is the new “Persil – better than ever from 20°C”. From April 2008, Persil with its high-performance active stain remover will be offering even better results from just 20°C, enabling the laundry to be washed at low temperatures – with proven Persil cleanliness still abounding, of course. Hence, with Persil, it is possible to both save energy and spare the environment.
