Wacker raises prices for vinyl acetate-based dispersions in the Americas

April 10, 2013

Wacker Polymers is raising prices for Vinnapas vinyl acetate-ethylene and Vinnol ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions in the Americas. Effective May 1, 2013, Wacker will implement a price increase of $0.03 per wet pound, or as customer contracts allow. The company says this measure has been necessitated by the continued increase in raw material cost. Dispersions of the Vinnapas and Vinnol brand are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, building products, carpet and textiles.
