Launching renewables-based silicone sealants

10:16 AM, 2nd February 2021

WACKER is extending its silicone portfolio to include silicone sealants based on renewable raw materials. With its ELASTOSIL® eco brand now launched in Europe, the Munich-based chemical group is able to offer products manufactured using bio-based methanol to silicone sealant suppliers. The new brand is based on the REDcert standard which confirms the traceability of renewable raw materials across WACKER’s entire production process – from the initial upstream process to the ready-to-use silicone sealant. ELASTOSIL® eco is WACKER’s first approach to encompass and compensate all fossil-based raw materials and additives in the product formulation by using bio-based methanol.
