Effective September 20, 2013, or as contracts allow, Arkema Coating Resins will increase the price of acrylic and styrene acrylic latex products sold in North America.
The price of ENCOR® and SNAP® acrylic and styrene-acrylic, and NEOCAR® Acrylic latexes will increase by five percent to 15 percent per wet pound. The price of Celocor® opaque polymer will increase by five percent to ten percent per wet pound. ENCOR® styrene-acrylic hard resins will increase by five percent to ten percent per pound.
This action is necessary due to escalation in the cost of raw materials and transportation for these products.
