WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices for Dispersions and Dispersible Polymer Powders
MUNICH — WACKER POLYMERS is raising its prices for vinyl-acetate-ethylene-based copolymer dispersions, dispersible polymer powders and solid resins of its VINNAPAS®, VINNOL®, ETONIS®, VINNACEL® and SMARGO® brands worldwide. Effective July 1, 2018, prices will be raised by up to 10%, or as customer contracts allow.
Rapidly rising raw-material costs, especially for acetic acid and vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) — two indispensable raw materials for the manufacturing of WACKER’s vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer dispersions, dispersible polymer powders and solid resins — are the reason for this measure.
The price adjustment enables WACKER POLYMERS’ continued security of supply, technological innovation and comprehensive technical, sales and customer support services.
