WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices for Dispersions globally

Munich, Oct 05, 2017

WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices for dispersions of the brands VINNAPAS®, VINNOL® and PRIMIS® globally. Effective October 16, 2017, prices will be raised by up to 10%, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the ongoing cost increases especially through market price increases for raw materials such as vinyl acetate monomer (VAM).

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®, VINNOL® and PRIMIS® brands are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, caulks, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, carpet and textiles.
