Wacker receives innovation award for alpha-silane-based adhesives and sealants

Published October 4, 2011
Wacker has received Frost & Sullivan’s New Product Innovation Award for its novel Geniosil product class. According to Frost & Sullivan, the Geniosil product class was chosen because it incorporates advanced alpha-silane technologies, offers superior performance during processing, delivers high value to customers and gives them a fast return on investment. Geniosil enables the formulation of fast-curing adhesives and sealants, with applications ranging from highly flexible, paintable sealants through to high-strength assembly adhesives and crystal-clear cabinet sealants.

Frost & Sullivan tested several construction adhesives and sealants. Assessment criteria included innovative element, leverage, value added features, return on investment and penetration potential. Geniosil received top points in all categories.

“Wacker's Geniosil products incorporate a special silane structure that equips them with high reactivity, which enables them to be interlinked with polymers, leading to a wide range of possible formulations. Geniosil is able to successfully eliminate crosslinking problems associated with polyurethanes and enhance the properties of silicones,” said Best Practices Account Manager Macaulay Iyayi.

Sealants and adhesives formulated with Geniosil offer outstanding mechanical properties. They do not require labeling, formulations being free of plasticizers and solvents. Geniosil is used in numerous sophisticated adhesive formulations, e.g. in the automotive sector, in container construction and for bonding parquet floors. Wacker also offers a new range of ready-to-use adhesives called Geniosil N. The product line includes several products for the adhesive and sealants industry.
