WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices for Dispersions in North America

Munich , Sep 29, 2020

WACKER POLYMERS is to raise prices for vinyl acetate-ethylene and ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions of the VINNAPAS® and VINNOL® brands in North America. As customer contracts allow, effective October 16, 2020, prices will be raised by up to 10 percent. This measure has been necessitated by the increase in logistic and raw material market costs.

The price adjustment enables WACKER POLYMERS to continue providing customers with a wide range of innovative quality products and comprehensive technical, sales and customer support services, along with supporting investment to secure the capability for future growth across our focus markets.

Dispersions of the VINNAPAS® and VINNOL® brand are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, caulks, non-wovens, paints and coatings to paper, carpet and textiles.
