With support of our distributor WWRC Taiwan and Wacker Silicons as market partner Poraver® offered a one day seminar for coatings and dry mortar manufacturers in Taiwan.
More than 40 participants followed the invitation and participated in the seminar.
The first half of the day was dominated by hydrophobic solutions for coatings presented by Wacker Silicons. After the lunch break Dr. Michael Monz, technical sales director for Dennert Poraver GmbH, presented an overview and how to select lightweight aggregates before going into more details on how Poraver® expanded glass granulates can improve the properties of tile adhesives, SLUs and thermal insulation renders.
Our coating customers welcomed the introduction to the new product line Poraver® X. The new product shows a lower water absorption and brighter color, making it an ideal raw material for ready-to-use applications. The final presentation was about how to formulate lightweight dry mortars using a volume based concept vs. the typical weight based concept.
We are pleased about the great interest shown by the participants in our products and would like to thank WWRC Taiwan and Wacker Silicons for their excellent and cooperative collaboration. Seminars in the next years to intensify the technology transfer are planned.
