WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices for Dispersions in the Americas

Munich/Allentown, March 13, 2014 – WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices for VINNAPAS ® vinyl acetate-ethylene and VINNOL ® ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions in the Americas. Effective April 15, 2014, WACKER will implement a price increase of up to five percent per wet pound, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the continued increase in raw-material cost. The price adjustment enables WACKER POLYMERS to continue providing customers 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, construction, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, carpet and textiles.
