Wacker Polymers to increase prices by 8%

Wacker Polymers is to increase prices for its polyvinylalcohol solutions by 8% and its vinylacetate and acrylate based dispersions by up to €40 per tonne in Europe, effective February 15.

According to Wacker, this measure has been necessitated by the continued increase in raw-material, energy and logistics costs. The price adjustments are intended to enable the company to boost the development of its product and process technologies.

Vinylacetate and acrylate based dispersions, Vinnapas and Vinnol are utilised in the manufacture of textiles, nonwovens, coatings, carpets and adhesives. Vinnacoat and Polyviol polyvinylalcohol solutions are mainly used within the printing industry.
