WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices For Dispersions in EMEA



Published May 20, 2014
WACKER POLYMERS is to maintain its
price adjustment for vinyl acetate-based homopolymer dispersions
as well as vinyl acetate-ethylene and ethylene-vinyl chloride-
based copolymer dispersions of the VINNAPAS® and
VINNOL brand in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The temporary surcharge of €140 per ton implemented on May
1st 2014 will persist, as customer contracts allow, until further
notice. This measure has been necessitated by the ongoing high
costs for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), a crucial raw material for
the manufacturing of WACKER’s dispersions.
„As long as the prices for vinyl acetate monomer in Europe remain on
the current elevated level, we will have to keep in place this surcharge
for our dispersions to partially compensate our increased
cost“, explains John Fotheringham, Vice President Dispersions &
Resins at WACKER POLYMERS. “Our focus remains on securing
supplies of our critical raw material, and reliably supplying innovative
high-quality products to our customers.”
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.
