Elastosil silicone rubber from Wacker covers a wide range of products. They are used in, for example, turbocharger hoses
German chemicals company Wacker has signed an agreement with Siliconas Silam SA, allowing the Spanish silicones compounder to sell ready-to-use products made from Wacker silicone rubber base under Siliconas Silam's own label and bearing the supplemental slogan "Based on Elastosil".

According to Wacker's press release on January 30, Siliconas Silam has been compounding and marketing Wacker products in the region for more than a decade. "The Spanish market is important for us, since we closely cooperate with local cable manufacturers and suppliers to the automotive and household-goods sectors. Thanks to our long-term commitment and the support of our distribution partners, we have established a strong position there, especially in solid silicone rubber," said Dr Bernd Pachaly, Head of the Engineering Silicones business unit at Wacker.

Silicone compounds are usually made by mixing crosslinker, pigments and other additives into the rubber base. Typical applications range from high temperature-resistant hoses for the automotive sector to cable insulation and to heat-resistant gaskets for oven doors.

Juan Mañero, Proprietor of Siliconas Silam, praised the agreement as a major milestone in cooperating with the Munich-based chemicals group. "Wacker and Siliconas Silam have been collaborating for years. The new agreement gives us the opportunity to pool our knowledge and strengths even more effectively than before to provide better service for customers."
