MUNICH, GERMANY/NANJING, CHINA: Wacker Chemie AG will expand its production capacity for dispersible polymer powders capacity at its Nanjing, China site in 2014. By productivity improvement and debottlenecking measures in existing facilities, the company intends to double its current capacity of 30,000 metric tonne per year to meet increasing customer demand in China. Debottlenecking work is scheduled to start immediately upon issuing of the necessary permission by the local authorities.

“After the successful capacity expansion for vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) copolymer dispersions in Nanjing site earlier this year, we are now ready to increase our dispersible polymer powder capacity as well. The market demand in China is continually growing, in particular for residential construction. The increasing trend towards construction of pre-decorated housing is also driving demand for ceramic tile adhesives, which require high-quality dispersible polymer powders. This capacity expansion will support market growth and strengthen our position as the leading manufacturer of dispersible polymer powders in China,” said Arno von der Eltz, President, WACKER POLYMERS.
