WACKER Polymers to Raise Prices For Dispersions in EMEA


Driven by continued increase in raw material cost

WACKER Polymers is to raise its prices for VINNAPAS vinyl acetate-ethylene and VINNOL ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Effective April 1, 2014, WACKER will implement a price increase of up to €70 per ton, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the continued increase in raw material cost.

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.
