Wacker presents the first ever renewables- based dispersible polymer powder
Produced for construction applications via the Mass Balance approach, Vinneco 5044 N is manufactured using biobased acetic acid
Wacker is expanding its new product line of polymeric binders based on renewable raw materials. With its Vinneco® brand, the Munich-based chemical Group will offer a redispersible polymer powder manufactured using biobased acetic acid. The new redispersible polymer powder Vinneco 5044 N is mainly suitable for producing construction materials, such as waterproofing membranes or dry-mix mortars for external thermal insulation composite systems (ETICS).
Ecological and sustainable building construction plays a key role in global efforts to reduce climatically harmful carbon dioxide. As architects and property developers increasingly turn to renewable raw materials, ever more manufacturers of construction materials are now offering such solutions.
“By 2030, 90 percent of our portfolio will consist of products rated as sustainable or at least neutral,” says Frank Reichle, director of Construction Polymers in Western Europe at Wacker, “With Vinneco 5044 N, we are taking yet another step in this direction by offering our customers a sustainable alternative to Vinnapas 5044 N in the future. Our Vinneco® product line allows producers to replace fossil raw materials with renewables.”
