WACKER Increases Prices for Polymeric Binders and Resins

Munich, Oct 18, 2021

Due to continuously rising energy, raw material and logistics costs, the Munich-based chemical group WACKER intends to adjust its prices for polymer dispersions, dispersible polymer powders and resins. The price increase of up to 20 percent will apply to all WACKER POLYMERS products shipped as of November 1. The temporary surcharge for dispersible polymer powders in Europe is also affected and will increase to €590 per metric ton.

The price adjustment will enable the group’s polymers division to continue providing customers with high product quality, technological innovations, best-in-class customer service and technical support, along with supporting investment to secure the capability for future growth across focus markets.

WACKER POLYMERS is a leading producer of state-of-the-art binders and polymeric additives based on polyvinyl acetate and vinyl acetate copolymers and terpolymers. These take the form of dispersible polymer powders, dispersions, solid resins, and solutions. They are used in construction chemicals, paints and surface coatings, adhesives, sealants, carpet applications and nonwovens, as well as in fiber composites and polymeric materials based on renewable resources. WACKER POLYMERS has production sites in Germany, China, South Korea and the USA, as well as a global sales network and technical centers in all major regions.
