WACKER produces 500 mn cartridges of adhesives and sealants at Nunchritz plant

MUNICH/NUNCHRITZ, GERMANY: Munich-based chemical group WACKER has produced half a billion cartridges of adhesives and sealants at the site since production startup in 1998. The Nunchritz plant is one of the first fully integrated silicone sealants sites in the world. In addition to standard sealants, the product portfolio includes special fire-resistant and food-contact grades as well as silicone hybrids based on innovative and user-friendly alpha-silane technology. Besides Nunchritz, WACKER also manufactures silicone adhesives and sealants in China and South Korea.

“It was here that silicone chemistry came of age. After the Muller-Rochow synthesis was developed, the inventor Richard Muller went on to scale up production of silicones from laboratory to industrial quantities,” said Uwe Scheim, Head of Sealants Research & Development, Nunchritz site, WACKER.
