Fairlawn, Ohio—Omnova Solutions’ Specialty Chemicals business today announced a price increase of $.09 per dry pound for all styrene butadiene emulsion polymers. In addition, all vinyl pyridine (VP) latex products produced in the U.S. will increase by $.13 per dry pound.
These increases are effective July 15 for all specialty markets including coatings, tape & 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, according to company executives.
