Arkema Emulsion Systems Announces Price Increase for Latex Products


Effective September 15, 2010 or as contracts allow, Arkema Emulsion Systems will increase pricing on all latex products. UCAR™ acrylic, styrene-acrylic, styrene-butadiene and NEOCAR® Acrylic latexes will increase by $0.05 per wet pound. UCAR™ vinyl-acrylic, EVOCAR® vinyl acetate-ethylene and NEOCAR® Latexes will increase by $0.02 per wet pound.

This action is necessary due to continued increases in cost of key raw materials. Also, due to ongoing shortages of acrylic monomers, some acrylic latex products will remain on sales control until further notice.
