WACKER Signs Up Intertronics for Silicone Distribution


Reading time ( words)

Munich based chemical company WACKER and Intertronics are pleased to announce the signing of a distribution contract under which Intertronics will sell WACKER’s range of RTV silicone encapsulants and potting compounds, adhesive sealants, and thermally conductive compounds to customers in the UK and Ireland.

Intertronics’ customers are involved in technology manufacturing in areas such as electronics, lighting, automotive, defence and aerospace. WACKER’s silicone rubber products are used as sealants and gaskets, adhesives, and protective potting and encapsulation materials – applications which are very familiar to the Intertronics team. Thermal management is another demand, as electronics designs continue to pursue increasing power in smaller circuits. Thermally conductive silicones provide an answer to controlling the resultant heat.

Peter Swanson, MD of Intertronics explains: “Silicone chemistry offers great benefits for our customers, including outstanding long term temperature stability, very good chemical resistance and long-lasting flexibility. It is a strategically important and synergistic addition to our range, adding extended capability. We are very excited to be working with WACKER with its huge resources and strong brand.”

Gabriele Thye, Managing Director of WACKER’s UK sales region adds: “We welcome Intertronics as a WACKER distributor. Their position as a trusted advisor to the market and their renowned high level of customer service will be key to generating many new mutual customers.”
