WACKER Expands VAE Production at Nanjing, China WACKER expands vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) dispersion and polymer powder production at Nanjing, China, to meet the growing demand for high-quality binders for China’s buoyant construction industry.

Formulating High-quality Tile Adhesives


Dispersions and dispersible polymer powders from WACKER are used in various sectors, such as construction, paints, coatings and adhesives. The polymers are used for formulating high-quality tile adhesives, energy-saving external thermal insulation composite systems, and low-odor low-emission interior paints.

China is the largest building market in the world, accounting for 20 percent of all construction investment. Our capacity expansion in Nanjing strengthens our position as the global leader for VAE dispersions and polymer powders,” said Rudolf Staudigl, chief executive officer of WACKER Chemie AG.

Environmentally-friendly Building Materials


At the production site in Nanjing Jiangbei New Material High-Tech Park, WACKER manufactures VAE dispersions, dispersible polymer powders and polyvinyl acetate solid resins. VINNAPAS® polyvinyl acetate solid resins, used in binders and/or as additives in adhesives, sound-damping sheets or as low-profile additives.

Ongoing urbanization and the need to renovate existing residential buildings continue to drive the development of environmentally-friendly dry-mix building materials in China. Nanjing’s expanded capacities will enable us to securely meet future market growth in the region,” said Paul Lindblad, president of WACKER Greater China.

WACKER bundels its Chinese polymer activities at one site to create synergies, since shared infrastructure, raw-material sources and energy supplies enable economies of scale. In addition, this approach makes transport and logistics especially efficient.
