This measure is necessitated by rising raw material and energy costs

Wacker, the Munich-based chemical group, is raising its prices for silicone polymers, silicone fluids and silicones from further production stages as of April 1, 2017.

Depending on product family, region and business field, the price increase ranges between 10-20 percent, if permitted by existing customer contracts. This measure is necessitated by rising raw material and energy costs.
