Wacker Expands Technical Center in Moscow

Munich-based chemicals group Wacker AG has expanded its technical center in Moscow, Russia. Auguste Willems of Wacker’s Executive Board and Dr. Christian Hartel, head of Wacker Silicones, dedicated the new service lab today in the presence of several customers. The facility will serve as a test lab for silicone elastomers and ready-to-use silicone compounds and will cater to the energy, electrical and automotive industries. This investment aims at further enhancing services to key customers in Russia and Eastern Europe and spurring Wacker’s silicone business in the region.

The lab is located south of downtown Moscow, right next to the technical center, which has supported customers of polymeric binders for construction and dry-mortar applications since 2003. The new lab, which opened today, is entirely geared to silicones customers. It will formulate and test high- and room-temperature-curing silicone rubber and ready-to-use silicone compounds.

Silicones are extremely versatile and are used in numerous Russian industries. Wacker expects mid- and long-term business growth from the Russian energy and automotive industry. Currently, Russia is making great efforts to modernize the country’s transmission and distribution systems for energy, Willems hopes for a push of water-repellent, good isolating silicone. Silicone rubber is also increasingly used in cars because of its unique set of properties and because it meets the industry’s ever more complex requirements better than other plastics. So, Willems is also in this area confident.
