At the second “West Africa Building & Construction Exhibition” in Accra, Ghana, the Munich-based WACKER Group showcases high-performance polymers and silicone technologies for challenging construction applications. The company’s tradeshow portfolio, presented under the motto “Access Tomorrow’s Solutions”, comprises dispersions for waterproofing membranes and interior paints, water-repellent silicone resins for masonry coatings, and silicone sealants for general and sanitary purposes. The “West Africa Building & Construction Exhibition” takes place from July 2 to 4 at Accra’s International Conference Center.
“WACKER is accelerating its business development in the African continent, especially the Sub-Saharan African region. It is the first time that we are showcasing our technologies here in Ghana, and this exhibition is a great opportunity for us to explore further the market potentials in Ghana and Western Africa”, said Cyril Cisinski, Managing Director of Wacker Chemicals Middle East, while attending the tradeshow. For the first time, the company will also present its customized concept for the Western Africa region: “We have developed tailor-made solutions for polymer-modified tile adhesive formulations taking into account local climatic conditions and raw materials. Our aim is to transform the dry-mix mortar market in Ghana and Western Africa, as we believe that our products can enhance the performance of local construction chemicals and add great value to the regional construction market, especially in the field of sustainable building techniques.”
