Johnson Polymer Increases Prices on Emulsions and Solid and Solution Resins
September 9, 2005
Effective March 1, Johnson Polymer is implementing a price increase for North America on acrylic and styrene acrylic emulsions and resins, polyurethane dispersions and urethane-acrylic hybrids and high-solids acrylic polyols. Waterborne products will increase between $0.02 - 0.04/lb., and polyols and solid resins between $0.04-0.06/lb. The price increase is driven by continued increases in raw material, energy, labor and environmental compliance costs, according to the company.
