MUNICH – WACKER, the Munich-based chemicals group, received Frost & Sullivan’s New Product Innovation Award for its novel GENIOSIL® product class. The award was presented at a special event in London. 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 customers 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.
In consideration of the award, 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 at the award ceremony.
