MUNICH, GERMANY/DUBAI, UAE: WACKER has expanded the service portfolio at 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 interior and exterior paints and coatings applications. The new lab comprises applications technology and test equipment for polymer dispersions needed as binders for interior architectural paints.

A further focus is on silicone additives and binders for interior and exterior paints and coatings. The expansion not only enables WACKER to help its local customers develop new and tailor-made products for the strongly growing market for high-quality coatings, also encourages the exchange of know-how and promotes internationally recognized quality standards in the region.

The expansion was made necessary by the region’s strong economic growth, particularly with regard to sophisticated paint and coating applications. This measure will help WACKER to further bolster its position as a leading producer for vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE) dispersions and silicone additives and binders.

“The expansion of our technical centre helps us to further strengthen our leading market position in the promising growth segment of paints and coatings in the Middle East. The company therefore continues investing in its Dubai technical centre to augment and refine its expertise in research and development, as well as its local applications technology and customer service,” said Cyril Cisinski, Managing Director, Wacker Chemicals Middle East.

“Our technical centre here in Dubai is top-notch equipped and unique in the region. Thus, we are setting new standards in service, advice and transfer of expertise, offering our customers and business partners considerable added value,” added Cisinski.
