Wacker to Supply Larger Volume of Vinyl Acetate-Based VINNOL®

Published on 2011-01-31. Author : SpecialChem

MUNICH -- The Munich-based chemicals group WACKER can supply significantly greater volumes of VINNOL® surface coating resins as of January 2011. From the start of the first quarter 2011, VINNOL® H 15, in particular, is available in larger quantities than before. Vinyl chloride copolymer-based binders had become scarce in 2010 as a result of consolidation of the binders market. By increasing product availability, WACKER is playing a key role in ensuring supplies of raw materials and meeting its responsibilities as one of the leading producers of packaging coatings. WACKER is also planning to ramp up delivery capacities for its hydroxyl-containing products by the end of the third quarter. These resins are needed primarily for the production of printing inks.

VINNOL® surface coating resins are vinyl chloride/vinyl acetate-based copolymers and terpolymers, available in a number of molar compositions and degrees of polymerization. The product portfolio includes grades without functional groups as well as grades with carboxyl or hydroxyl groups. VINNOL® coating resins are used mainly as binders for printing inks, adhesives, and industrial and packaging coatings.


WACKER POLYMERS is a leading producer of state-of-the-art binders and polymer additives based on polyvinyl acetate and vinyl acetate copolymers in the form of dispersible polymer powders, dispersions, solid resins and solutions. These products are used by companies in the construction, paints and coatings, adhesives, paper and nonwovens industries, as well as by manufacturers of fiber composites and polymer materials based on renewable resources. WACKER POLYMERS has production sites in Germany, China, South Korea and the USA, as well as a global sales network and technical centers in all major regions.
