WACKER’s extensive and first-class ELASTOSIL® product portfolio is ideally suited to numerous automotive applications.
When the joy of driving meets road safety, ELASTOSIL® is usually part of the team. ELASTOSIL® silicone products are ideal co-drivers in automotive applications: they push themselves to the limit, stay cool in high temperatures, and ensure that automotive, electronic and bodywork components all work perfectly...
“ELASTOSIL® is a real chameleon among elastomers and rubber, and its versatility means it is often that vital step ahead of other materials,” says Martin Stömmer, senior marketing manager at WACKER, who has been heavily involved with ELASTOSIL® products since 1998. “In the automotive sector, quality plays a particularly important role – and our ELASTOSIL® brand is a worldwide symbol of high-quality German engineering.” Indeed, some ELASTOSIL® products, such as LR 3003 and R 401, have long been internationally renowned, and thanks to their first-class property profiles are benchmarks in many markets and application areas.
It is hardly surprising, then, that ELASTOSIL® has great growth potential, even after sixty years. “In particular, applications for LSR (liquid silicone rubber) are becoming increasingly versatile. This growth is opening up new application areas and harnessing new markets,” Stömmer explains. “That is why we attach so much importance to enhancing our position in the LSR market.” LSR products even have their own website:
. The website serves as a central communication platform for all information regarding products, processing, quality and innovation.
The Innovative Edge
Six decades of success are no reason to sit back and relax. In our laboratories and technical centers, we continuously carry out technological research and develop unique, innovative solutions – often working with customers in entirely new fields of application. “Ever-increasing demands are placed on the properties of ELASTOSIL® silicone elastomers and their processing,” explains Martin Stömmer, “so we constantly develop our products and expand our portfolio in line with market requirements and customer needs. This gives us and our customers an important competitive edge.”
