Rohm and Haas Announces Price Increase For Architectural and Functional Coatings In North America

Published on 2006-09-20. Author : SpecialChem

Philadelphia, PA -- Rohm and Haas Architectural and Functional Coatings will implement list and off-list price increases for all vinyl acetate based emulsions sold to the architectural coatings, industrial coatings, construction and building products, and textile and nonwovens industries in North America.

The Rovace , Res , and Polyco emulsions will be increased by $0.03 per wet pound, effective immediately or as contracts allow.

The increase is required to offset the continuing escalation of petrochemical feedstocks costs, especially vinyl acetate monomer, propylene, and butanol which have reached record levels. Shortages and spot outages of feedstocks are aggravating the economic picture.
