Published on 2005-11-03. Author : SpecialChem

MUNICH -- Effective December 1, 2005, WACKER POLYMERS will raise prices for VINNAPAS® dispersions and dispersion powders. Price increases will range up to 15 cents per 1 kg for dispersion powders and 10 cents per 1 kg for dispersions. These price adjustments will ensure the highest standard in WACKER's product quality, product safety and product service. It also will allow WACKER to continously develop innovative products and process technologies. Despite all continued efforts to optimize our cost structures, rapidly rising raw material, energy and transportation costs make this step inevitable.
