Solenis Announces Global Price Increase on ASA

October 31, 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WILMINGTON, Del. – Solenis today announced a global price increase effective immediately, or as contracts allow, by 25% on ASA products.

"Our cost to supply customers with ASA has been impacted significantly due to the global shortage of alpha olefin, a key raw material. It is expected that olefin supply will continue to be tight as the supply chain builds inventory through mid-2015. We will work closely in partnership with our customers to find alternative solutions,” said Charles Robinson, senior vice president, Pulp & Paper.
