WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices For Dispersions in the Americas

Munich, May 27, 2016

WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices for vinyl acetate-ethylene and ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions of the VINNAPAS® and VINNOL® brand in the Americas region. As customer contracts allow, effective June 15, 2016, prices will be raised by up to five percent. This measure has been necessitated by the increase in raw-material costs, especially for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), a crucial raw material for the manufacturing of WACKER’s dispersions.

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.

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