Singapore − The Munich-based Wacker Group has expanded the range of services in its Singapore Technical Center.
The chemical group is responding to the growing demand for silicone products and the emerging needs of regional customers for technical support and expertise. The investment amounts to roughly €400,000.
The centre provides technical support to a wide range of different industrial sectors, including construction, paint & coatings, textiles, paper and chemicals. Its technical labs test and develop dispersible polymer powders and dispersions as well as silicone emulsions, silicone resins and antifoam agents for customers throughout Southeast Asia. In 2012, the Singapore Technical Center started providing additional support for manufacturers that use innovative VAE dispersions based on vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymers as binders for the formulation of low-emission interior wall paints.
Wacker has been supplying chemical products to Southeast Asia for many years. Wacker Chemicals (South Asia) Pte. Ltd., which was established in 1984, coordinates regional sales. Wacker has also operated a technical centre in Singapore since 2007. It has further technical centres in the Asia region, such as in Australia, China, India and South Korea. The chemical company currently operates 22 such facilities around the world.
