Situated in the Nanjing Chemical Industrial Park, WACKER’s world-scale polymer site started operation in December 2009. By the end of 2013, WACKER's investment in Nanjing site totaled to €100 million. Products from this site include VINNAPAS® dispersible polymer powders, vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE) dispersions and polyvinyl acetate (PVAc) solid resins. VINNAPAS® dispersible polymer powders are high quality binders for modern dry-mix mortar. They are widely used in diverse building applications such as exterior insulation and finish systems, tile adhesives, self-leveling flooring compounds, etc.VAE dispersions, on the other hand, serve a wide range of industries ranging from adhesives, nonwovens, paints and coatings, to building products, paper, carpet and textiles. PVAc solid resins are mainly used to produce chewing gum base.
By the end of 2016, WACKER Nanjing site could possess an annual capacity of 60,000 metric tons of dispersible powder, 120,000 metric tons of VAE dispersions and 20,000 metric tons of PVAc solid resins, and currently is the largest of its kind in China. The expansion of the Nanjing site will also reinforce WACKER’s position as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of dispersible polymer powder, polymer dispersions and PVAc solid resins.
