WACKER, the Munich-based chemical company, reorganizes its distribution network for silicone and polymer products in Australia and New Zealand.

As part of a global consolidation process, IMCD Australia Limited and IMCD New Zealand Limited are to be entrusted with the distribution of WACKER's polymer and silicone products in Australia and New Zealand. Effective May 1, 2011, IMCD will replace the previous distribution partners Amtrade International Pty Ltd, Australia and Amtrade International Pty Ltd, New Zealand.

The Dutch chemicals distributor IMCD is already a WACKER partner in most Western European and several Eastern European countries, as well as in South Africa. The product focus will be on dispersible polymer powders and dispersions as well as on silicone emulsions, silicone resins, antifoam agents and cysteine. The main application areas for these WACKER products in Australia and New Zealand are the construction, cosmetics, textiles and pulp and paper-processing sectors, the chemical process industry and the food and pharma industry.

WACKER is a world-leading manufacturer of vinyl acetate/ethylene and vinyl chloride copolymers, marketed worldwide as VINNAPAS and VINNOL. These thermoplastic, plasticizer-free polymers are mainly used in construction chemicals, adhesives, nonwovens, paints and coatings, paper, carpets and textiles.

With over 3,000 highly specialized and innovative products, WACKER is also one of the largest silicone manufacturers worldwide. The portfolio ranges from silicone fluids, emulsions, resins, elastomers and sealants to silanes and pyrogenic silica. These products find application in such sectors as construction, chemicals, cosmetics, textiles, automotive, paper and electronics.
