Wacker Expands Technical Center in Mumbai to Include Dispersion Applications for Coatings

28-Nov-2011 - India

Wacker has expanded its technical center in India. This center of excellence located in Goregaon, a suburb of Mumbai, now also includes laboratories, applications technology and test equipment for polymer dispersions for coatings and paint applications. These dispersions are needed for interior and exterior paints in the coatings industry. The expansion not only enables Wacker to support its Indian customers to develop new and locally adapted formulations, but also encourages the exchange of know-how and promotes internationally recognized quality standards in India.

The expansion was made necessary by India’s strong economic growth, particularly with regard to sophisticated coatings applications. This measure will help Wacker to further bolster its position as the market and technology leader for vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE) dispersions used as binders for demanding coatings and paint applications.

“The expansion of our technical center is another milestone in our growth strategy”, said Raman Trikala, managing director Wacker Chemie India. The company therefore continues investing in its Indian technical center to augment and refine its applications technology and customer service in the region. “Our top-notch equipped technical center here in India’s economic hub Mumbai sets new standards in service, advice and transfer of expertise, offering our customers and business partners considerable added value.”
