WACKER POLYMERS is raising its prices for vinyl-acetate-ethylene-based copolymer dispersions, dispersible polymer powders and solid resins of its VINNAPAS®, VINNOL®, ETONIS®, VINNACEL® and SMARGO® brands worldwide. Effective July 1, 2018, prices will be raised by up to ten percent, or as customer contracts allow. Rapidly rising raw-material costs, especially for acetic acid and vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) – two indispensable raw materials for the manufacturing of WACKER’s vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer dispersions, dispersible polymer powders and solid resins – are the reason for this measure.
The price adjustment enables WACKER POLYMERS’ continued security of supply, technological innovation and comprehensive technical, sales and customer support services.
WACKER’s dispersions and dispersible polymer powders are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, construction, caulks, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, carpet and textiles.
