WACKER POLYMERS Adjusts Prices for VINNAPAS® Dispersions and Dispersible Polymer Powders

Published on 2007-10-08. Author : SpecialChem

WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices worldwide for VINNAPAS® dispersions and dispersible polymer powders. The increase will range up to 15 percent for different product groups and regions and, unless otherwise agreed, will come into force on November 1, 2007. WACKER POLYMERS is investing heavily to support market growth. At the same time, raw material, energy and transport costs cannot be entirely offset by ongoing cost-optimization measures. The new prices have been made in order to continue the high product quality, technical innovations, and optimum service and technical support.

"The higher price is necessary to allow us to continue to reliably meet increased demands as our customers grow, in the face of much higher costs," says Peter Summo, head of the Construction Polymers Business Unit, explaining the increase.

Since the introduction of this product class 50 years ago, WACKER POLYMERS has been the global market and technology leader in the field of vinyl acetate-based copolymers and terpolymers – marketed worldwide under the VINNAPAS® trademark. VINNAPAS® polymer powders and dispersions are used mainly in diverse building applications such as exterior insulation and finish systems, construction and tile adhesives, screeds, self-leveling flooring compounds, plasters, repair mortars, grouts and cementitious sealing slurries. They enhance important end-product properties, such as adhesion, cohesion, flexibility and flexural strength. Water retention, processing properties and weatherability benefit from VINNAPAS®, too.
