WACKER to Raise Prices for Dispersions, Resins and Dispersible Powders from Europe

Effective July 1, 2022, or as customer contracts allow, the WACKER Group is to raise its prices for dispersions, resins and dispersible polymer powders sourced from its production sites in Europe. Prices for these products will be increased by up to 10 percent. This measure has been necessitated by rising costs for raw materials and logistics. Surging costs will also result in an increase in existing sur-charges for dispersible polymer powders. The price adjust-ments will enable the WACKER POLYMERS division to continue providing customers with high product quality, technological innovations, best-in-class customer service and technical sup-port, along with supporting investment to secure the capability for future growth across focus markets.

WACKER POLYMERS is a leading producer of state-of-the-art binders and polymeric additives based on polyvinyl acetate and vinyl acetate copolymers and terpolymers. These take the form of disper-sible polymer powders, dispersions, solid resins, and solutions. They are used in construction chemicals, paints and surface coatings, adhesives, sealants, carpet applications and nonwovens, as well as in fiber composites and polymeric materials based on renewable resources.

WACKER POLYMERS operates production sites in Germany, China, South Korea and the USA. The business division also maintains a global sales organization and runs technical centers in all key regions.
