WACKER DYMATIC's new plant in Zhangjiagang
WACKER DYMATIC, a joint venture of Wacker Chemie AG (Munich, Germany) and DYMATIC Chemicals Inc (Shunde, China), opened a new silicone emulsion plant in China. The facility, located in the Jiangsu Yangtze River Chemical Industrial Park, Zhangjiagang city (Jiangsu Province), produces silicone emulsions and process auxiliaries for the Chinese textile, leather and fibre industries and has a capacity of approximately 30,000 metric tons per year. With the new plant, WACKER DYMATIC will reinforce its leading position in these rapidly growing markets.

At the official opening ceremony in Zhangjiagang, Dr. Christoph von Plotho, President of WACKER SILICONES, emphasized the signifi-cance of the investment: “The opening of the new emulsion plant is an important milestone for the joint venture. The new facility here in Zhangjiagang will allow us to even better serve the local markets with customized solutions. It will also strengthen our position as a leading supplier of silicone emulsions in the regional market.”

WACKER DYMATIC is also investing in a new emulsion plant in Shunde (Guangdong province). “The two new facilities will help us to response quickly to local market needs, to improve customer services and to provide silicone products that meet international quality standards”, said Tony Huang, Chairman of the Board of Dymatic Chemicals Inc.

Silicones are often essential both for conferring certain properties in the production of textiles, leather and fibers, and for ensuring that the production processes themselves run smoothly. In textiles, for instance, they impart special properties such as smoothness, luster, soft hand, fullness and elasticity on the fabric while offering high functionality like water repellency, easy-care behavior, and long-lasting freshness. Processing benefits include easy sewability, faster process flow for greater efficiency and stability and effective foam control for smooth processes and enhanced cost-effectiveness, without sacrificing high product quality.
