WACKER Polymers to Raise Prices For Dispersions in the Americas
March 14, 2014
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 the Americas. Effective April 15, 2014, WACKER will implement a price increase of up to 5% per wet pound, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the continued increase in raw material cost.
