Published on 2004-11-08. Author : SpecialChem

Munich -- Effective December 1, 2004, WACKER SPECIALTIES will raise prices for VINNAPAS® redispersible powders worldwide. Prices will increase by 10 EUR per 100 kg. The company is responding to the sharp rise in raw-material prices over recent months, to higher costs for transportation, energy and environmental protection as well as to overall cost increases. The adjustments will enable WACKER to continue its policy of providing excellent quality, product safety and service, and developing innovative products and processing technologies.

VINNAPAS® redispersible powders are principally used as binders for a large number of modern applications in the construction chemicals industry, such as exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS), construction adhesives, tile adhesives, self-leveling compounds, renders and skim coats, repair mortars, trowelling compounds and cementitious sealing slurries.

Redispersible powders, dispersions, solid resins, powder binders and surface coating resins from WACKER SPECIALTIES are used by companies in the construction, automotive and coatings industries, as well as by printing ink manufacturers. In the fine chemicals and biotechnology sectors, this business division is also an expert for tailored customer solutions.
