Wacker Chemical Corporation
Calvert City, Kentucky, USA
Well positioned to meet the growing demand for polymer binders in North and South America
We have been producing dispersions and dispersible polymer powders in Calvert City since 1998. In 2015, we took another important step in expanding our position as a global technology and market leader for VAE-based VINNAPAS® dispersions with the construction of our own dispersion reactor.
The new reactor not only ensures that we have a continuous raw material supply and supply security, but also makes a vital contribution to the cost-efficient production of our dispersions. From here we ship products all over the world, though primarily to customers in the adhesives, paints, coatings, construction and nonwovens sectors across North, Central and South America.
Like all WACKER sites, Calvert City observes the global chemical industry Responsible Care® guidelines and has a comprehensive quality and safety program.
