MUNICH, GERMANY: Wacker Chemie AG said that it is increasing its prices for silicone polymers, silicone fluids and silicones from further production stages as of 1 April.
Depending on product family, region and business field, the price increase ranges between 10 and 20 percent, if permitted by existing customer contracts. This measure is necessitated by rising raw-material and energy costs.
These price adjustments will ensure that the Wacker silicones business division continues to provide outstanding quality products and service along with high delivery reliability.
