Wacker to raise prices for some polymers

 

MUNCHEN, GERMANY: Wacker Polymers is to raise its prices for vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride and acrylic-based dispersible polymer powders and construction dispersions of the VINNAPAS brand. Effective June 1, 2011, prices for vinyl acetate and vinyl chloride-based products will be increased by up to 10 per cent and by up to 15 per cent for acrylic-based products, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the current strong increase in raw materials, energy and transport costs.
