Wacker is to open a new technical center specializing in the development of tile adhesives in Bengaluru, India, to meet the demands of a growing Indian construction industry. This booming sector which currently constructs as many as 11.5 million houses each year, is seen as possibly becoming the third biggest global construction industry within the next five years.

According to the company, this growth, and the increasing demand for customized solutions it generates, gave rise to the need for a regional centre where knowledge could be shared, and standards set for tile adhesives and consultation. The Bengaluru technical center would focus primarily on flexibility and strength in the development of new tile adhesives in order to improve its adherence to substrates, while also providing enough flexibility to prevent breaks and cracks occurring in the tiles themselves.

Success in achieving this, Wacker reported, resulted from the polymeric binders used in the production of its dispersible polymer powder adhesives.
