WACKER hiking silicone products prices
WACKER, the Munich-based chemical group, is raising its prices for silicone polymers, silicone fluids and silicones from further production stages as of April 1, 2017. Depending on product family, region and business field, the price increase ranges between 10 and 20 percent, if permitted by existing customer contracts. This measure is necessitated by rising raw-material and energy costs.
These price adjustments will ensure that the WACKER SILICONES business division continues to provide outstanding quality products and service along with high delivery reliability.
WACKER SILICONES is one of the largest silicone manufacturers worldwide with over 3,000 highly specialised and innovative products. The division’s portfolio ranges from silicone fluids, emulsions, resins, elastomers and sealants to silanes, silane-terminated polymers and pyrogenic silica. These stand out due to their significant value-adding potential – enhancing both the benefits and performance of customers’ end products. WACKER SILICONES’ products find application in such sectors as automotive engineering, construction, chemicals, cosmetics, medical technology, energy & electronics and paper & textiles.
