Wacker Polymers to raise prices for vinyl acetate-based dispersions in the Americas
February 14, 2012
Wacker Polymers is increasing its prices for Vinnapas vinyl acetate-ethylene and ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions in the Americas. Effective February 29, 2012 Wacker will implement a price increase of $0.03 per wet pound, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the continued increase in raw-material and distribution cost said the company. Vinnapas dispersions are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, building products, carpet and textiles.
