Abstract: In an effort to extend the still limited sample of s-process enriched post-AGB stars, high-resolution, high signal-to-noise VLT+UVES spectra of the optical counterparts of the infrared sources IRAS 06530-0213 and IRAS 08143-4406 were analysed. The objects are moderately metal deficient by [Fe/H]=-0.5 and -0.4 respectively, carbon-rich and, above all, heavily s-process enhanced with a [ls/Fe] of 1.8 and 1.5 respectively. Especially the spectrum of IRAS 06530-0213 is dominated by transitions of s-process species, and therefore resembling the spectrum of IRAS 05341+0852, the most s-process enriched object known so far. The two objects are chemically very similar to the 21 mum objects discussed in Van Winckel & Reymers (2000). A homogeneous comparison with the results of these objects reveals that the relation between the third dredge-up efficiency and the neutron nucleosynthesis efficiency found for the 21 mum objects, is further strengthened. On the other hand, a detailed comparison with the predictions of the latest AGB models indicates that the observed spread in nucleosynthesis efficiency is certainly intrinsic, and proves that different C-13 pockets are needed for stars with comparable mass and metallicity to explain their abundances.
