Creating Solutions for a Better Future.
The silicone sealant that conserves fossil resources.
Versatile, High Quality, Durable and Sustainable!
Four properties – one promise of quality. We have enhanced our silicone portfolio with joint sealing compounds based on renewable raw materials – marketed under the name ELASTOSIL® eco. This lets us supply you with ready-to-use silicone sealants produced using plant-based biomethanol. These products are certified to the REDcert2 standard, which safeguards traceability of renewable raw materials along the entire WACKER production process – right up to the ready-mixed ELASTOSIL® eco product.
Our special topic looks at everything in detail: which target groups we are addressing, what applications are possible and what the first users and developers have said so far. Let’s take another step together into a greener future.
A Look Behind the Scenes.
How do we produce our premium silicone sealant using renewable raw materials? And, at what point does our ELASTOSIL® turn into ELASTOSIL® eco?
Accompany Dr. Wolfgang Schattenmann, Vice President of Hybrids & Sealants, Dr. Michael Dehmer, Head of Production, Nünchritz, and Axel Schmidt, responsible for Hybrids & Sealants, on a tour through the ELASTOSIL® production process in the Nünchritz plant.
Together with us towards a greener future. No need to forgo our WACKER promise of quality: The ELASTOSIL® eco silicone sealants match our conventionally produced sealants perfectly in terms of versatile applications, durablity and high quality.

Particularly in my branch, the painting sector, customers place a great deal of value on using sustainably produced paints. And this is why I see great potential in the future for this sustainably produced silicone sealant.”
