Wacker’s technical centre now also includes laboratories, applications technology and test equipment for polymer dispersions for coatings and paint applications.
Germany-based company Wacker has expanded its technical centre in India. The centre located in Goregaon, a suburb of Mumbai/India, 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 the company 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 the company to further bolster its market position for vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE) dispersions, used as binders for demanding coatings and paint applications.
