OMNOVA Solutions Ups Cost for Emulsion Polymers

FAIRLAWN, OH | OMNOVA Solutions’ Specialty Chemicals business has announced a price increase of $0.07/dry lb for all styrene butadiene emulsion polymers and up to 10% for all acrylic, styrene acrylic, and vinyl acrylic emulsion polymers, as well as other textile chemicals. The increase is effective Feb. 14, 2011, for all specialty markets including coatings, tape & adhesives, floor care, graphic arts, nonwovens, textiles, construction, and oilfield chemicals.
