It All Started with WACKER ACADEMY Europe

When we opened the first WACKER construction-chemistry training center – the VINNAPAS® ACADEMY – in Burghausen in 2007, we quickly realized that we had a hit on our hands. Demand for seminars that linked the basics of construction chemistry with practical training was huge. construction experts from all over the world began coming to Burghausen as early as 2008 to broaden their knowledge. And so WACKER ACADEMY was born – a unique service offering within the industry.

Europe (Burghausen) Webinar Distributors

This training will enable you to better understand the “tissue language” spoken from tissue producers and to know what WACKER can offer for the tissue industry. This will support you to better promote successfully our LIOSIL® TS additives.The term tissue covers products such as toilet paper, handkerchiefs, kitchen towels, napkins, paper towels and facial tissues. All these articles of daily use must meet the highest expectations from customers. Tissue products are expected to be soft, cheap, tear -resistance, hygienic and are supposed to combine all this with a nice sensorial profile.To enable tissue producers to achieve all these characteristics, additives are added during and after the production process. WACKER offers under the trade name LIOSIL® TS products, which allows exactly to yield this multi – functionality. Our products are especially well suited to improve the softness and sensorial profile of tissue products. Applying even a small amount of these yields a noticeable improvement in the properties of sanitary paper products.In this basic training we will introduce you to all aspects of the tissue industry.
