Rohm and Haas Consumer and Industrial Specialties Business Announces Price Increases for Europe

Published on 2004-09-08. Author : SpecialChem

Paris, France -- Rohm and Haas Company's Consumer and Industrial Specialties Business announces price increases for customers in Europe.

Prices will increase 5 to 10 percent for selected acrylic and styrene acrylic polymers effective immediately or as contracts permit. These products include DURAPLUS™ and PRIMAL™ floor care polymers, ACUMER™, ACUSOL™, OPTIDOSE™ , OROTAN™ and ROMAX™ dispersants, ACUSOL™ Opacifiers and ACULYN™ and ACUSOL™ rheology modifiers.

The increases are required to offset the continuing escalation in crude oil and all major petrochemical feedstock costs and styrene which has increased greater than 50% from levels earlier this year. Shortages and spot outages of feedstocks continue to aggravate the economic picture.
