Wacker Silicones is scheduling further price increases for its products. Effective October 15, 2021 the silicones business division of Wacker Chemie AG, Munich/Germany will increase prices on average by 30% or more. The measure is necessitated by ongoing significant cost increases for strategic raw materials, especially silicon metal, logistics and packaging as well as multiple corona pandemic measures. Critical components in the supply chain have multiplied in cost.
Wacker’s complete silicones portfolio including silicone fluids, silicone emulsions, silicone rubber, silicone resins, silanes, HDK pyrogenic silica, sealants and silane-terminated polymers is subject to the upcoming price adjustments.
