Wacker Intensifies Collaboration with Silspek Rubber
Wacker Chemie AG, Munich, Germany, is assigning additional marketing rights to its sales partner Silspek Rubber for the sale of high-temperature-curing silicones. The group is entitling the Polish silicone compounder to market ready-to-use silicone rubber compounds based on Wacker raw materials with the label “Based on Elastosil.” This also applies to products distributed under the company’s own label.
The main customers for silicone compounds are rubber processors who manufacture molded parts for the automotive, construction, electronics, cable and household-goods industries.
Eastern Europe is one of Wacker’s most important growth regions. This includes Poland, where the silicone elastomer business has developed very well over recent years. Silicone compounds find application in the Polish household-goods, cable and electrical industries, for example.
Silspek is based in Dobrzen Wielki, Poland, and currently employs 35 people. The family-run business predominantly processes raw materials from Wacker.
