WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices For Dispersions in Europe

Published on 2010-12-27. Author : SpecialChem

MUNICH -- WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices in Europe for VINNAPAS® and VINNOL® vinylacetate and acrylate based dispersions. Effective January 15, 2011, prices for vinylacetate based dispersions will be increased by up to €40 per ton and by up to €60 for acrylate based dispersions, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the rise in raw material and transport costs.

The price adjustments will enable WACKER POLYMERS to continue providing excellent quality and comprehensive technical service and to boost the development of innovative product and process technologies for the benefit of customers. VINNAPAS® and VINNOL® dispersions are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, carpet and textiles.
