Munich, Germany / Accra – At the second “West Africa Building & Construction Exhibition” in Accra, Ghana, the Wacker Group is showcasing its polymers and silicone technologies for construction applications.
The exhibition is taking place 2-4 July at Accra’s International Conference Center.
“Wacker is accelerating its business development in the African continent, especially the Sub-Saharan African region. It is the first time that we are showcasing our technologies here in Ghana,” said Cyril Cisinski, MD of Wacker Chemicals Middle East.
The company will also debut its customised concept for the Western Africa region.
“We have developed tailor-made solutions for polymer-modified tile adhesive formulations taking into account local climatic conditions and raw materials,” Cisinski said.
“Our aim is to transform the dry-mix mortar market in Ghana and Western Africa, as we believe that our products can enhance the performance of local construction chemicals and add great value to the regional construction market, especially in the field of sustainable building techniques.”
At the show, Wacker will introduce its Vinnapas polymer binders range for modern construction solutions. It will also showcase its Silres BS product portfolio. These products are based on water-repellent silicone resins and silicone resin emulsions and offer building protection.
