Australian Technical Center
The Melbourne technical center is there to support you with expert knowledge in construction materials and offer technical support for our products. Our employees answer questions about your formulations, train your personnel and help you to optimize your processes from the raw materials right to the finished product.
Fast Track Formulation Development
Our technical center on the southeast coast of Australia is a development and testing laboratory for various construction material applications. With our extensive expertise and regional know-how, we will find custom solutions for your needs. We optimize important properties of your products, adapt them to customer requirements or reformulate them for other applications.
Our partnership with a local university allows us to develop new innovations through continual knowledge transfer, helping us to manufacture market-oriented products with a high potential for adding value.
Inspection of exterior insulation and finish systems
An exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) provides exterior walls with an insulated, water-resistant surface in an integrated composite material system. To this end, at the Melbourne technical center we test the adhesion between inorganic and organic elements, protection from moisture, and resistance to weather, fire and mechanical stress.
- Customized application development for ceramic tile adhesives, self leveling underlayment, waterproof membranes, ceramic tile grout and external thermal insulation composite systems
- Training and seminars at the WACKER ACADEMY, both in person and online
- Technical service and problem solving for your products
Tile Adhesion Products
The addition of WACKER dispersible polymer powders improves the properties of your tile adhesion products.
Smooth Floor Surfaces
Self-leveling flooring compounds must be easy to apply and also possess the correct properties to withstand mechanical or thermal stress.
Protection against Moisture
Whether for infrastructure or a private swimming pool, waterproofing members protect all types of surfaces from water exposure and humidity.
