WACKER POLYMERS to Raise Prices for Dispersions in Europe.

Published on 2008-07-21. Author : SpecialChem

WACKER POLYMERS is to raise its prices in Europe for AIRFLEX®, VINAC®, FLEXBOND® and FLEXCRYL® dispersions. Effective September 1st, 2008, prices for these dispersions will be increased by up to 40 € per ton, or as customer contracts allow. This measure has been necessitated by the continued strong rise in raw material costs and the general cost increases in transport, packaging and energy. The price adjustments will enable WACKER POLYMERS to continue providing excellent quality and comprehensive technical service and to boost the development of innovative product and process technologies for the benefit of customers. AIRFLEX®, VINAC®, FLEXBOND® and FLEXCRYL® dispersions are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, nonwovens, paints and coatings, to building products, paper, carpet and textiles.
