Plastics

WACKER offers the plastics industry an outstanding portfolio for the processing of thermoplastic materials: from standard through-engineering to high-end plastics.

Our specific product range enables the upgrade of cost-efficient base plastics, such as PE and PP, into higher-value plastics with enhanced or new characteristics, through the selective modification of polymers and by compounding with silane- or silicone-based additives.

With poly(vinyl acetate)-based VINNEX®, biopolymers can be processed just like standard thermoplastics while maintaining their biodegradability. The system enables the precise adjustment of physical properties as required and confers compatibility on different materials, such as starch, PLA, PHA, PBS and CA.
