EXTON, Pa. -- Global specialty chemicals manufacturer Sartomer Company will increase the prices of its acrylate and methacrylate monomers and oligomers effective November 15 (or as contracts allow). Increases will vary by product line as follows:

  • Acrylate monomers increase will range from 10 cents to 25 cents per pound
  • Methacrylate monomers increase will range from 6 cents to 12 cents per pound
  • Oligomers increase will range from 8 cents to 15 cents per pound

According to Sartomer's business director of specialty products, Paul Elias, the price increase is due to the recent escalation of raw material costs. These increases will impact product shipments from the United States to the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

Sartomer's monomers, oligomers, and photoinitiators are used as raw materials for ultraviolet- and electron beam (UV/EB)-cure coatings, adhesives, inks, electronics, and other applications.
