FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WILMINGTON, Del. (USA) — Solenis will increase prices on its process chemicals for pulp and paper manufacturing as well as its polyacrylamide (PAM) products for industrial water treatment in Asia Pacific, effective immediately or as contracts allow. A 5-10% increase will occur on select process chemicals and PAMs, while varying increases can be expected for different products and countries where there has been significant local currency devaluation.
"Increasing costs associated with key raw material, labor, transportation and production are driving this price increase," said Charles Robinson, senior vice president, Pulp and Paper. "Solenis continues to invest heavily in R&D and our manufacturing footprint to allow us to provide industry-leading product support and value to our pulp and paper customers."
"Solenis remains committed to controlling costs through process improvements to deliver high value, innovative solutions that our customers have come to expect," said Edward Connors, senior vice president, Industrial Water Technologies.
