Wacker Polymers to Raise Prices For Dispersions in EMEA, Asia
Increasing prices for Vinnapas, Vinnol dispersions
Wacker Polymers will raise its prices for dispersions in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), as well as in Asia. Effective March 1, 2014, prices for Vinnapas vinyl acetate-ethylene and Vinnol ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions in EMEA will be increased by up to €30 per ton, or as customer contracts allow. In Asia, prices for Vinnapas vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer dispersions will be raised by up to 5% per kilogram, or as allowed by individual contract terms. This measure has been necessitated by the continued increase in raw-material cost.
