Wacker Polymers is to raise its prices for dispersions and dispersible polymer powders in Europe effective April 15, 2017, or as customer contracts allow. Prices for vinyl acetate-based homopolymer dispersions as well as vinyl acetate-ethylene-based co- and terpolymer dispersions will be increased by up to 80 € per ton; prices for acryl-based copolymer dispersions will be raised by up to 125 € per ton; for dispersible polymer powders, prices will be increased by up to five percent. This measure has been necessitated by the continued increase in costs, for example for raw materials.
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 and dispersible polymer powders of the VINNAPAS brand are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from construction, adhesives, caulks, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, carpet and textiles.
