CARY, N.C. -- Effective January 15, 2010 or as contracts allow, UCAR™ Emulsion Systems and Monomers will be increasing pricing on all latex and rheology modifier products. UCAR acrylic, styrene-acrylic, styrene-butadiene and NEOCAR™ Acrylic latexes and UCAR Polyphobe™ Thickeners will increase by $0.05 per wet pound.

UCAR vinyl-acrylic, EVOCAR™ vinyl acetate-ethylene and NEOCAR Latexes will increase by $0.03 per wet pound. This action is necessary due to recent increases in the cost of key raw materials used to produce these products.
