Effective February 1, 2013, or as contracts allow, Arkema Coating Resins will increase pricing on all latex products sold in North America.

ENCOR® styrene-acrylic hard resins will increase by $0.05 to $0.10 per pound. ENCOR® and SNAP® acrylic, styrene-acrylic and styrene-butadiene latexes and NEOCAR® acrylic latexes will increase by $0.05 to $0.10 per wet pound. Celocor® opaque polymer will increase by $0.04 per wet pound. ENCOR® vinyl-acrylic, vinyl acetate-ethylene and NEOCAR® latexes will increase by $0.02 to $0.03 per wet pound.
