Dow Announces Sept.1 Price Increases for Oxygenated Solvents

Published on 2005-08-17. Author : SpecialChem

Midland, MI -- The Dow Chemical Company announced that it will raise list and off-list prices on a number of products in its Oxygenated Solvents portfolio in North America on September 1, 2005.

"This increase is a result of increased raw material costs, as well as stronger supply/demand fundamentals following a period of de-stocking and inventory adjustment," says Martin Sutcliffe, global business director, Glycol Ethers. "We expect demand will continue to grow during the latter half of this year, as customers rebuild their inventories."
