Omnova announces price increase

February 5, 2013

Specialty chemicals will increase by as much as $0.12 per dry pound.

Omnova Solutions’ Specialty Chemicals business has announced a price increase of up to $0.08 per dry pound for all styrene butadiene emulsion polymers produced in the US and up to $0.10 per wet pound for all acrylic and styrene acrylic emulsion polymers. Vinyl acrylic and vinyl acetate emulsion polymers will increase up to $0.03 per wet pound. In addition, Plioway and Pliolite resins will increase by up to $0.12 per dry pound.

These increases are effective February 18, 2013 for all specialty markets including coatings, tape and adhesives, floor care, graphic arts, nonwovens, textiles, construction, tire cord, and oilfield chemicals. This action is necessitated by the continuing escalation in the costs of key raw materials and is in addition to previously announced increases.
