MUNICH – WACKER POLYMERS is raising 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, a crucial raw material for the manufacturing of WACKER’s dispersions.
