Munich / Allentown -- Wacker Polymers is to raise its prices for VINNAPAS® vinyl acetate-ethylene and ethylene-vinyl chloride-based copolymer dispersions in the Americas. Effective October 14, Wacker will implement a price increase of $0.03 per wet pound, or as customer contracts allow.

VINNAPAS® dispersions are applied in a broad variety of industries, ranging from adhesives, nonwovens, paints and coatings to paper, building products, carpet and textiles.
