About Wacker Chemicals Middle East
The WACKER Group’s activities in the Middle East and Africa date back to 1980s, working with various local partners and distributors. A fully-owned WACKER subsidiary was established in Dubai to service this region in 1999, and, in the year 2002, the Technical Center was launched as a development and testing lab for construction-chemistry applications.
In recent years, WACKER Chemicals Middle East witnessed a double-digit growth across its territory. The Munich-based company focuses on providing the region with high-quality and state-of-the-art chemicals that cater to both the construction and the infrastructure sectors. These products are compliant with global building codes of practice and to the materials’ environmental compatibility and energy-saving potentials.
However, WACKER’s applications are used in various other industries within the region namely insulator coatings, elastomers, consumer care, paints, sealants, adhesives and textiles.
Located at the Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) technology park in a 3,200 m2 building and spanning a plot of nearly 13,000 m2, the technical center is furnished with state-of-the-art equipment and hosts both the sales operations, research and application labs, and a training academy.
Benefit from Modern Technology
The ultramodern Technical Center in Dubai is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and offers a very unique set-up for this region. By having this facility under the same roof as the WACKER Academy and the regional sales office, WACKER is setting new standards in service, advice and transfer of expertise, offering customers and business partners considerable added value.
Recently, WACKER has expanded the service portfolio at its Technical Center in Dubai to include a dedicated laboratory for interior and exterior paints and coatings applications in addition to the existing lab for construction chemicals. The new lab comprises applications technology and test equipment for polymer dispersion needed as binders for interior architectural paints.
A further focus is on silicone additives and binders for interior and exterior paints and coatings. The expansion not only enables WACKER to help its local customers develop new and tailor-made products for the strongly growing market for high-quality coatings. It also encourages the exchange of know-how and promotes internationally recognized quality standards in the region.
