Published on 2004-08-03. Author : SpecialChem


Research Triangle Park, N.C. USA -- Reichhold announced on 2nd August, 2004, a price increase of $0.10 per pound on all FINE-CLAD® acrylic powder coating resins sold in North America. The increase is for both list and off-list prices and will be applied to all orders shipped on or after September 1, 2004.

"This price adjustment is in direct response to significant cost increases Reichhold has incurred on principal raw materials used in the production of these high-performance powder resins," explained Bruce Fawcett, Reichhold senior vice president, commercial. "We've experienced price hikes across a number of key acrylic monomers including glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) monomer, for which tightness in availability has sharply driven up prices for this primary component," continued Fawcett.

"As always, we thank our customers for their business and encourage them to contact their Reichhold sales representative if they have any questions regarding this pricing adjustment," Fawcett concluded.

Reichhold's FINE-CLAD® acrylic powder resins are used as primary film-formers, crosslinkers and additives in the production of high performance powder coatings.
