WACKER Signs Up Intertronics for silicone distribution

Munich-based chemical company WACKER and Intertronics have signed a key distribution contract.

Under the agreement, 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.

“Silicone chemistry offers great benefits for our customers, including outstanding long-term temperature stability, very good chemical resistance and long-lasting flexibility,” explained Peter Swanson, MD of Intertronics, second from left in the photo. “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, pictured centre, added: “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.”
