Technical centre opens to aid local development

Wacker Chemie AG is expanding its range of services in Turkey with today’s official opening of a technical centre for construction, textile and consumer-care applications in Istanbul.

The technical facility serves as an application and test laboratory for polymeric binders and silicones needed in the region’s construction, textile, household and cosmetics industries. 


This new technical center is Wacker Chemie AG’s response to Turkey’s sustained economic growth. “Our customers’ rising sales volumes are being joined by higher quality and service requirements, which we are now even better able to meet with our new local test facility,” said Wacker executive board member Auguste Willems during the opening ceremony. 

The equipment enables specific tests and formulations tailored to the needs of the local cosmetic and household-care industries. The laboratory is also well equipped for developing local formulations. For example, shampoos, creams or fabric softeners that contain Wacker's silicones can be formulated to help customers with their development projects.

The new technical center will also be used to hold theoretical and practical training courses.
