Radio to go
At WACKER's Podcast Center, you can listen to exciting chemistry-related topics as free and portable radio broadcasts whenever you want.
Superpower for Superfood
Turmeric is considered an absolute superfood. But there is a problem: the plant substance is not water-soluble - and is poorly absorbed by the body. WACKER BIOSOLUTIONS has succeeded in increasing the bioavailability of the biologically active substance curcumin by a factor of 40: with CAVACURMIN. Entrepreneur and pharmacist Natalie Vladi is thrilled.
Anti-Graffiti Coating for Smooth Surfaces
An anti-graffiti coating from WACKER protects bricks and plaster for longer. WACKER has now developed a primer that makes it possible to apply the protective coating to smooth surfaces as well. Glass, plastic, marble, metal and even artistically valuable graffiti can now be protected against unwanted vandalism.
Custom-designed building protection
Bitumen coatings prevent water from entering the foundation or the roof of a building. When you add polymers from WACKER’s VINNEVA® product range to the bitumen emulsion, the mass adheres better to the substrate, yet at the same time, it’s less sticky. Also, it repels water more effectively than other products. Since the composition of bitumen differs depending on where it is sourced, WACKER offers a customized solution for each application."
Milk Foam for the Senses
Every self-respecting barista wants to achieve perfect latte art – works of art created in the foam of milk or milk substitutes. WACKER BIOSOLUTIONS developed CAVAMAX W6 especially for premium barista products. It makes creative artwork possible that not only looks perfect, but also keeps its shape for even longer, while enhancing flavor.
An unpleasant odor often lingers in the room after the walls have been painted. This is caused by the volatile organic compounds in the paint. WACKER chemists have succeeded in developing a binder for paints that only emits minimal amounts of such undesirable substances. VINNAPAS® EP 3560 even meets the Scandinavian ecolabel's stringent requirements - and makes the paint disperse better than before, while preventing salts from forming white spots on the paint.
