Wacker Cooperates with Lindberg & Lund

The chemicals group Wacker Chemie AG, Munich, Germany, has reorganized its silicone distribution business in the Nordic countries. As of March 1, 2015, Lindberg & Lund Oy AB, a subsidiary of the Norwegian chemicals distributor Lindberg & Lund AS, will market room-temperature-vulcanizing silicone rubber grades in Finland. Kevra Oy was the previous distributor for the business. Distribution responsibilities in Sweden are to remain with ABIC Kemi AB, which is now part of the Lindberg & Lund Group.

As a result of the reorganization, Lindberg & Lund will be assuming a large portion of the distribution business, giving it a key role in the sale of room-temperature-curing silicones in the Nordic region. ABIC, a Swedish specialty chemicals distributor, will act as a regional hub, distributing products to adjacent Scandinavian countries, including Denmark.

Silicone rubber compounds that cure at room temperature are referred to as RTV silicones, as distinct from high-temperature-vulcanizing (HTV) grades. These products are suitable for bonding, sealing and encapsulating, as well as for manufacturing hard-soft composites. Thanks to their versatility, RTV grades are used in an exceptionally wide variety of industrial applications including moldmaking, prototyping, and pad printing, as well as in the mass production of industrial components, such as those for the domestic appliance, automotive or lighting industries.
