Munich, Germany - Wacker has appointed Solpro Danismanlik Kimya Sanayi ve Tic, its long-time distributor in Turkey, as its compounding partner in the country, with immediate effect.
The two companies signed an agreement to that effect in mid-September. Accordingly, Solpro will add compounding services to its existing sales activities on behalf of Wacker's high (HTV) and room (RTV) temperature vulcanising silicones.
The ready-to-use compounds are sold under Solpro's own brand and will be labeled â€œBased on Elastosilâ€. The compounds are targeted at customers in the automotive, construction, electronics, cables and household appliance industries.
Solpro's proprietor, Dr. Metin Savaskan, acknowledged the agreement as an important milestone in his cooperation with the Munich-based chemicals Group. â€œWe are already responsible for selling Wacker silicones elastomers in Turkey. Now, we will also be able to produce ready-to-use custom products from Wacker's silicone-rubber base materials. That opens up entirely new markets and ways of meeting our customers' needs.â€
Solpro, headquartered in Istanbul, is among Turkey's leading suppliers of silicone raw materials, high-performance elastomers and complementary products. The company serves a large number of sectors - such as the household appliance, automotive, electric, electronic, mould making, construction and cable industries - and delivers innovative solutions and products with additional value-adding potential under their registered trademark Inoser
