WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices for vinyl acetate-ethylene and ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions of the VINNAPAS® and VINNOL® brand in the Americas region. As customer contracts allow, effective June 15, 2016, prices will be raised by up to five per cent. This measure has been necessitated by the increase in raw-material costs, especially for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), a crucial 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® and VINNOL® brand are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, caulks, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, carpet and textiles.
WACKER POLYMERS is a leading producer of state-of-the-art binders and polymeric additives based on polyvinyl acetate and vinyl acetate copolymers. These take the form of dispersible polymer powders, dispersions, solid resins, and solutions. They are used in construction chemicals, paints, surface coatings, adhesives and nonwovens, and in fiber composites and polymeric materials based on renewable resources. WACKER POLYMERS has production sites in Germany, China, South Korea and the USA, as well as a global sales network and technology centers in all major regions.
WACKER has a global network of production sites spanning all key regions. 17,000 employees on five continents devise innovative solutions locally for maximum customer benefit and generate synergies for efficient collaborations.
