WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices For Dispersions in EMEA

Munich, May 22, 2015

WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices for VINNAPAS® vinyl acetate homopolymer dispersions as well as VINNAPAS® vinyl acetate-ethylene and VINNOL® ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Effective June 15, 2015, WACKER will implement a price increase of up to €50 per ton, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has become necessary in the view of the recent increase in raw-materials cost.

The price adjustment enables WACKER POLYMERS to continue providing customers a wide-range of innovative quality products and comprehensive technical, sales and customer support services.

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