Wacker is to raise prices for its entire silicones product range. The price increases vary between 10 and 20 percent and will be effective for material shipped from April onwards, as customer contracts allow. Additional volume requests outside of agreed ranges are also subject to the new price setting. The measure has been necessitated by the increase in strategic raw material costs, rising costs for support- and packaging materials and multiple corona pandemic measures in order to improve the service of Wacker Silicones.
Wacker’s complete silicones portfolio, including silicone fluids, silicone emulsions, silicone rubber, silicone resins, silanes, silane-terminated polymers and HDK® pyrogenic silica, is subject to the price adjustment. With this, Wacker Silicones will continue to strongly invest in innovation, support global asset development and strive to achieve high customer service levels.
