Dow UCAR Emulsion Systems Announces Price Increases for Emulsion Products and Rheology Modifiers

Published on 2007-11-22. Author : SpecialChem

Cary, NC -- UCAR Emulsion Systems (UES), a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, is increasing the list and off-list prices on its emulsion products and rheology modifiers.

Effective December 1, 2007, or as contracts allow, for all North American customers, UES will increase the price by US$0.03 / wet pound for all products at or below 55 percent solids and US$0.04 / wet pound for all other products in all chemistries including acrylic, vinyl acrylic, styrene acrylic, and styrene butadiene latexes, EVOCAR™ latexes, NEOCAR™ polymers, and UCAR™ POLYPHOBE™ rheology modifiers.

These increases apply to all market segments, including architectural and industrial coatings, construction products, adhesives and sealants, and traffic coatings. The ongoing escalation in all costs related to the manufacture of these products, particularly feedstock, energy and transportation costs, continues to drive these increases.

Customers interested in learning more about the price increases should contact their local Dow sales representatives.
