WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices for vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer dispersions of the VINNAPAS® brand in the Americas region. Effective April 10, 2017, prices will be raised by up to five percent, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the ongoing market price increases in vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) which is a primary raw material for the manufacturing of WACKER’s dispersions.
The price adjustment enables WACKER POLYMERS to continue providing customers with a wide-range of innovative quality products and comprehensive technical, sales and customer support services.
Dispersions of the VINNAPAS® brand are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, caulks, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, carpet and textiles.
