Wacker at MosBuild: Presents GENIOSIL® STP-E Hybrid Polymers for Sealants and more

Published on 2014-04-04. Author : SpecialChem

Munich / Moscow -- At this year's MosBuild, which is taking place from April 1 to 4, 2014, in Moscow, the Munich-based Wacker Group is presenting a new dispersible polymer powder for cost-efficient self-leveling compounds. VINNAPAS® 4220 L produces smooth, uniform surfaces that satisfy even the strictest ecolabel requirements, such as EMICODE® EC1+. Wacker is also presenting its extensive portfolio for the Russian construction and coatings industries, ranging from polymer and silicone products for facades and fire protection coatings, through hybrid polymers for solvent-free adhesives and sealants, to water- repellent sealing slurries.

At MosBuild 2014, Wacker is presenting its new VINNAPAS® 4220 L dispersible polymer powder for formulating cost-efficient and environmentally friendly self-leveling flooring compounds. This powder, developed for the Russian market, among others, is based on vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE) and produces a smooth, even surface that possesses high abrasion resistance, flexural strength and compressive strength. The new binder also confers good leveling properties, low viscosity and good defoaming properties. Not only does it yield uniform surfaces with no air bubbles, but VINNAPAS® 4220 L can also be used in self-leveling flooring compounds that have an ultra-low content of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and so meet the latest environmental and safety standards, such as EMICODE® EC1+. As VINNAPAS® 4220 L also offers an outstanding cost-benefit ratio, it represents a good combination of performance capability and economic and ecological advantages.

Further Product Highlights from Wacker at MosBuild:

SILRES® BS for Effective Facade Protection

Silicone resin emulsion paints based on SILRES® BS rank among the most advanced facade coating systems, offering an effective combination of the outstanding properties of both mineral and syntheticresin- bound paints. These include very high water-vapor permeability, extremely low water uptake and tremendous durability. SILRES® BS products are innovative, environmentally-compatible raw materials for the production of water-repellent masonry coatings and construction chemicals and materials.

VINNAPAS® LL 3112 for Fire Protection Coatings

 The polymer dispersion VINNAPAS® LL 3112 is an innovative binder for intumescent coatings. These special fire protection coatings encase steel girders and, in the event of a fire, form a heat-resistant barrier so that the load-bearing structures of a building remain stable for longer. As a binder, VINNAPAS® LL 3112 ensures adequate foam development and foam stability, coupled with improved adhesion and strength, so that the protective layer remains firmly bonded to the substrate.

GENIOSIL® STP-E: Hybrid Polymers for Modern Adhesives and Sealants

GENIOSIL® STP-E technologyʾs alpha hybrid polymers are ideal for producing fast-curing, one-component adhesives and sealants. The alpha effect even allows for the formulation of tin-free systems. Adhesives formulated with GENIOSIL® STP-E have outstanding mechanical properties, are exempt from labeling requirements and can be formulated without plasticizers and solvents. GENIOSIL® STP-E is used, for example, for bonding parquet floors.

Versatile and Flexible: VINNAPAS® 7055 E The dispersible polymer powder

VINNAPAS® 7055 E is a copolymer based on vinyl acetate and ethylene that is ideal for formulating onepart cementitious sealing slurries. The product offers strong adhesion, even after continuous water exposure, high elasticity, outstanding crack-bridging ability, even at low temperatures, and is easy to process. VINNAPAS® 7055 E can therefore be used for the permanent, durable waterproofing of sewers, basements, swimming pools or damp rooms, such as kitchens and bathrooms.
