WACKER Boosts Supply for Surface Coating Resins

Published on 2010-02-05. Author : SpecialChem

MUNICH -- WACKER, the Munich-based chemical company, is boosting delivery capacity for VINNOL® surface coating resins. Starting Q1 2011, the amount of VINNOL® H 15 available for delivery will rise substantially. Recent developments have led to the consolidation of the binder-market and a scarcity of copolymeric vinyl-chloride binders. By increasing product availability, WACKER is playing a key role in ensuring the availability of raw-materials and meeting its responsibilities as a market leader in packaging coatings.

VINNOL® surface coating resins are vinyl-chloride/vinyl-acetate copolymers and terpolymers, available in a number of different molar compositions and polymerization degrees. The product portfolio includes grades without functional groups as well as grades with carboxyl or hydroxyl groups. VINNOL® surface coating resins are used mainly as binders for printing inks, adhesives, and industrial and packaging coatings.


WACKER POLYMERS is a leading producer of state-of-the-art binders and polymer additives in the form of dispersible polymer powders and dispersions, polyvinyl acetates, surface coating resins and polyvinyl alcohol solutions. These products are used by companies in the construction, automotive, paper and adhesives sectors, as well as by manufacturers of printing inks and surface coatings. WACKER POLYMERS has production sites in Germany, China and the USA, as well as a global sales network and technical centers in all major regions.
