WACKER to Raise Prices for Dispersions and Dispersible Polymer Powders in Asia

Munich, Sep 07, 2021

WACKER, the Munich-based chemical group, is to raise its prices for VINNAPAS® dispersions and dispersible polymer powders in Asia. Effective September 15, 2021, prices for its complete product range will rise by up to ten percent, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the increase in raw-material costs and the extreme tightness of various raw materials.

The price adjustment enables WACKER POLYMERS, a WACKER business division, to continue providing customers with a wide range of innovative quality products and comprehensive technical, sales and customer-support services. VINNAPAS® dispersions and dispersible polymer powders find application in numerous industries, ranging from the construction, adhesive and caulk sectors, through nonwovens, paints and surface coatings, to paper, carpets and textiles.

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 operates production sites in Germany, China, South Korea and the USA. The business division also maintains a global sales organization and runs technical centers in all key regions.
