WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices for Dispersions and Dispersible Powders in the Americas Region

WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices for vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer dispersions and dispersible powders of the VINNAPAS® brand in the Americas region. Effective May 30, 2018, prices will be raised by up to five percent in the Americas, or as customer contracts allow. Ongoing high raw material costs, especially for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) which is a primary raw material for the manufacturing of WACKER’s vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer dispersions and dispersible powders, necessitate this step. Additionally, a logistics surcharge of $0.03 per pound will be implemented for all shipments effective May 30, 2018. This measure has been necessitated by the increasing freight, logistics and distribution costs across the industry.

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 and dispersible powders of the VINNAPAS® brand are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, construction, caulks, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, carpet and textiles.
