FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WILMINGTON, Del. (USA) — Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, will increase prices on all polyacrylamides and acrylamide monomer across the North America and EMEA regions, effective immediately. This price increase is necessary due to the steep increase of key feedstock material costs.
Several Force Majeure situations at major acrylonitrile producers in EMEA and North America have caused a shortage in product availability and significant cost increases. Acrylonitrile is the key raw material for making acrylamide monomer and polyacrylamide polymers used in paper making, municipal water treatment, mining and oil & gas applications.
Solenis is making every effort to overcome this shortage and secure the supply of polyacrylamides to our customers. Thank you for your continued business and partnership.
