CHARLOTTE, NC -- Effective Sept. 15, 2008, or as contracts allow, BASF will increase its prices by $US 0.11 per wet pound in the United States and Canada on all Butonal®and Butofan®high-solids and medium solids, respectively, styrene-butadiene latex used in the adhesives, carpet, construction, automotive, sealants, saturation, asphalt and foam markets.

This action is necessary as a result of unprecedented increases in raw material costs, in particular butadiene, which has significantly impacted BASF's business.

Butonal and Butofan are registered trademarks of BASF SE.
