MUNICH – As of Nov. 1, WACKER is raising its prices for silicone polymers, silicone fluids and silicones from downstream production stages. WACKER’s pyrogenic silica HDK® will also be affected. Depending on product family, region and business field, the price increase will range up to 25%, if permitted by existing customer contracts.

This measure is necessitated by rising production expenses due to increasing raw-material and energy costs.
