Wacker

Chemie AG, is ex­pand­ing the ser­vice port­fo­lio of its technical cen­tre in Dubai. The cen­tre of ex­cel­lence lo­cated at the “Dubai Sil­i­con Oa­sis” ( DSO) tech­nol­ogy park now also in­cludes a ded­i­cated lab­o­ra­tory for poly­mer dis­per­sions needed as binders for ad­he­sives and car­pet ap­pli­ca­tions.

The technical cen­ter Dubai now com­prises five lab­o­ra­to­ries to sup­port cus­tomers in the paints and coat­ings, con­struc­tion, en­ergy mold mak­ing, car­pet and ad­he­sives in­dus­tries. With the ex­pan­sion, Wacker is in­creas­ing its lo­cal ex­per­tise in ap­pli­ca­tions tech­nol­ogy, know-how trans­fer and ser­vice, thereby meet­ing its lo­cal cus­tomers’ needs for high-qual­ity sil­i­cone and

poly­mer prod­ucts in the strongly grow­ing mar­kets of the MEA re­gion.

The fo­cus of the new poly­mer lab is on pro­vid­ing technical sup­port for for­mu­la­tions with vinyl ac­eta­teethy­lene copoly­mer (VAE) dis­per­sions to meet the grow­ing lo­cal de­mands of cus­tomers in the car­pet and ad­he­sives in­dus­tries. The up­graded lab for sil­i­cones elas­tomers caters to the needs of cus­tomers of the en­ergy, mold mak­ing and au­to­mo­tive in­dus­tries. Both new labs are equipped with cut­ting-edge in­stru­men­ta­tion and en­able nu­mer­ous tests with re­gard to lo­cally avail­able raw ma­te­ri­als, cli­matic and en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions, and re­gional re­quire­ments. The sil­i­cones lab has fur­ther been cer­ti­fied ac­cord­ing to the ISO 17025 stan­dard.
