Price increase of oxygenated solvents

Published on 2009-07-01. Author : SpecialChem

Arkema announced that effective July 1, 2009, or as contracts allow, it will raise the price of its oxygenated solvents in Europe by 50 Euro/ton.

This price adjustment is necessary to offset the increase of raw materials and energy. Solvents impacted by this increase are:

  • Methyl Isobutyl Ketone (MIBK),
  • Diacetone Alcohol (DAA),
  • Hexylene Glycol (HG),
  • Isophorone.

The oxygenated solvents manufactured by Arkema are used in a wide range of markets such as paints and coatings, pharmaceuticals, lubricants, detergency and personal care.
