Noveon Announces North American Price Increases for Resins


Noveon will implement price increases for resins and polymers in North America, effective Jan. 17. Products affected include those used in paint and coatings; specialty paper and adhesives; electronics; inks; overprint varnishes and coatings; and textile coatings.
The increases are required to offset higher prices for crude oil and natural gas as well as key chemical raw materials such as acrylic acid and acrylate monomers, isocyanates and other urethane intermediates. Also contributing to the increases are raw material shortages and plant outages.
