Wacker Markets Pyrogenic Silica on Digital Platforms CheMondis and Pinpools
Munich, Germany-based chemical company Wacker is offering a selection of its HDK pyrogenic silica brand on Chemondis and Pinpools, two online marketplaces for chemical raw materials and specialty products.
Wacker is one of the largest manufacturers of pyrogenic silica which are used in a wide variety of applications., such as a filler for silicones, for thermal insulation, as an additive to control liquid flow characteristics, and as an anti-caking agent in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and foods. The product is used in industries like sealants, adhesives, paints and coatings, food and animal-feed.
Since late July, industrial customers can use either platform to order a total of nine HDK grades with a wide range of surface and rheological characteristics. Two products developed especially for the food and animal-feed industries, are available on Pinpools only.
“By deciding to sell our pyrogenic silica online, we hope to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by digitalization while raising the profile of a product that can be used as an additive in so many different applications,” said Maria-Anna Biebl, director of the HDK business team within the Wacker Silicones division.
