WACKER Expands Technical Center in Dubai

17-Aug-2017

WACKER is strengthening its presence in Middle East and Africa (MEA) by expanding the service portfolio of its technical center in Dubai. The center 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. Further, a laboratory has been established and ISO-certified for developing and testing silicone elastomers for growing industries such as energy and mold making. 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 region’s increasing growth potential, particularly with regard to carpet and energy applications, prompted the expansion of the local facility. “We are proud to say that our facility is the first in the region to offer both technical support and testing services for carpet manufactures, plus an ISO-certified silicones lab for high-quality, energy and mold making applications,” explained Cyril Cisinski, Managing Director Wacker Chemicals Middle East. “The expanded facility will strengthen our position as one of the leading silicones and polymers manufacturers in Middle East and Africa. With our extended lab facilities, we are adopting the international standard to local needs and conditions. Along with our sustainable and innovative solutions, we are offering our customers and partners in the region considerable added value.”
