WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices For Dispersions and Dispersible Powders in Americas

02-Oct-2014 - Germany

WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices for VINNAPAS® vinyl acetate-ethylene and VINNOL® ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions and dispersible powders in the Americas. Effective November 1, 2014, WACKER will implement a price increase of $0.03 per pound, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by constantly rising raw material costs, in particular for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM). Additionally, a logistics surcharge of $0.02 per pound will be implemented for all shipments effective November 1, 2014.

Ongoing high raw material costs, especially for vinyl acetate monomer, a crucial raw material for the manufacturing of WACKER’s dispersions and dispersible powders, necessitate this step. The logistics surcharge is related to increasing freight and distribution cost across the Americas region.
