WACKER Boost Supply of VINNOL® Surface Coating Resins
MUNICH, Germany – The Munich-based chemicals group WACKER can supply significantly greater volumes of VINNOL® surface coating resins as of January 2011. From the start of the first quarter 2011, VINNOL H 15, in particular, is available in larger quantities than before. Vinyl chloride copolymer-based binders had become scarce in 2010 as a result of consolidation of the binders market. By increasing product availability, WACKER is playing a key role in ensuring supplies of raw materials and meeting its responsibilities as one of the leading producers of packaging coatings. WACKER is also planning to ramp up delivery capacities for its hydroxyl-containing products by the end of the third quarter. These resins are needed primarily for the production of printing inks.
