Wacker: Expanded Cooperation with Solpro
Wacker Chemie AG, the Munich-based chemicals Group, is expanding its cooperation with the Turkish silicone compounder and distributor Solpro Ltd.. Accordingly, Solpro, besides handling sales of high (HTV) and room (RTV) temperature vulcanizing silicones, will take over the compounding of custom silicones for the Turkish market with immediate effect. The ready-to-use compounds will be sold under Wacker’s proprietary “Based on Elastolil” label. The compounds are targeted at customers in the automotive, construction, electronics, cables and household appliance industries. To produce compounds, the crosslinker, pigment and other additives are mixed into the rubber base. Typical applications range from automotive gaskets and cable insulation to rubberized rollers for photocopiers.
