Price Increases

BASF to increase prices for resins and additives in North America

March 12, 2012

Effective March 16, or as contracts allow, BASF will increase list and off-list prices for resins and performance additives by five to 15 percent in North America.

The price increase pertains to only the North American graphic arts, coatings and related markets, and is in addition to previous price increase announcements. This includes, but not limited to, the following product lines: Capcure polymercaptans; Empol dimer acids and co-products; Genamid amidoamine epoxy curing agents; Joncryl acrylic emulsions, polyols, solid resins and solutions; Laromer oligomers and reactive diluents; Luhydran self-crosslinking acrylic emulsions; Luwipal and Plastopal crosslinkers; Sovermol bio-based polyols; Versamid polyamide resins and epoxy curing agents; and Versamine modified-amine epoxy curing agents.

The company said the price increases are necessitated by higher costs for key raw materials, energy and transportation.
