Topics

BASIC CHEMISTRY

For a century now, we’ve ranked among modern chemistry’s pioneers. In that time, we’ve invented and developed many chemical processes and products. Topics could include specific products such as pyrogenic silica, product ranges such as polymer chemistry or application areas such as chemicals and textiles.

CONSTRUCTION APPLICATIONS

Polymer and silicone chemistry have changed the construction industry worldwide. WACKER is one of the few chemical companies at home in both of these chemistry disciplines. Our topics range from specific product solutions such as “Perfect Self-Leveling Flooring Compounds” through to key trends (e.g. “Energy-Efficient Facades”).

PAINTS AND SURFACE COATINGS

WACKER has developed many innovative solutions for the paint and coatings industry. Thus, the first silicone resin emulsion paints and specialty binders for low-VOC, solvent-free and plasticizer-free paints emerged from our laboratories. Topics range from silicone resin emulsion paints through to the benefits of vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) dispersions.

ADHESIVES AND SEALANTS

WACKER is a leading global producer of silicone sealants. At the same time, it is a pacesetter in this segment. Thanks to our unique hybrid technology, we formulate sealants and adhesives that set new standards in terms of performance. Our topics include silane-terminated polymers in general or specific applications such as wood-flooring adhesives and liquid waterproofing systems.

SILICONE RUBBER

WACKER is one of the largest silicone-rubber manufacturers. Our portfolio encompasses over a thousand different silicones, additives and process auxiliaries. Technical support is always included, too. This experience forms the basis of our seminars.

COSMETICS

Innovation-driven markets are characterized by short product cycles. Solid expertise and fresh ideas are necessary to keep up here. As one of the most research-intensive chemical companies, we offer you both.

TEXTILES

WACKER has been collaborating with the textile industry for decades. Our pooled expertise on the use of antifoam agents and silicone finishes is valued by customers around the world and forms the foundation of our seminar program.
