HORGEN, Switzerland -- Dow Coating Materials implemented a price increase in Europe, including central and eastern Europe, Russia and Middle East, for all products sold to the architectural and industrial coatings markets. The increase effective February 1, 2010, or as contracts allow, will affect all hydroxyethyl cellulose based polymers. The price increased by 10 percent. The increases are necessitated by cost escalation of key raw materials used to manufacture these products, and energy costs.
