Celanese Announces Vinyl Acetate-based Emulsions Price Increase in the Americas

DALLAS--()--Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty materials company and a global leader in VAE emulsions, announced today that it will increase the price of vinyl acetate-based emulsions sold in the Americas. PVAc homopolymer, vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) and vinyl acrylic emulsions will increase by up to $0.05 / wet pound effective November 1, 2014, or as contracts allow.

This increase is attributed to the continued pressures on raw materials, notably vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), and freight.

This price increase affects all applications including, but not limited to, adhesives, paints and coatings, building products, nonwovens, glass fiber, carpet, paper and textiles.

Customers should contact their Celanese sales representative for more details.
