Sartomer Company to Increase Monomer and Oligomer Prices


Sartomer Company increased the   prices of its acrylate and methacrylate monomers and oligomers effective March 15 (or as contracts allowed). Increases varied by product, and ranged from 11 to 27 cents per pound, or from 5 percent to 10 percent.           
According to Paul Elias, Sartomer’s business director of specialty products, the price increase is due to the continued escalation of raw material costs. Sartomer’s monomers and oligomers are used as raw materials for ultraviolet- and electron beam (UV/EB)-cure coatings, adhesives, inks, electronics and other applications.
