Wacker’s new silicone production in Jandira, Brazil: The Group is currently building a multi-purpose facility to manufacture antifoam compounds and functional silicone fluids. The new production facility will help the company to solidify its position as one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-quality silicones.

The company says the new production facility will help to solidify its position as one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-quality silicones. In Jandira, Wacker already manufactures silicone products for the construction, textile and pulp and paper industries.

In South and Middle America, the market for our silicone solutions is growing, especially in the personal care, household and textile sectors. In order to meet this increasing demand over the long term, we will extend our production in Jandira,” noted Wacker Executive Board member Auguste Willems.

The new production complex is a key addition to the Jandira site’s supply chain. With the new reactors, Wacker will be able to produce important precursors and starting materials for additives for the pulp and paper, cosmetics and household care industries.

With the expanded silicones production in the year of Wacker’s 40th anniversary in Brazil, we can offer considerable added value to our local customers and partners,” said Adriano Magalhaes, managing director of Wacker Quimica do Brasil. “The new facility makes it possible to enlarge our portfolio and adapt our products even better to customer needs and local industry requirements.
