Sartomer Company increased the price of its methacrylate monomers and urethane acrylate oligomers effective Jan. 15, 2007 (or as contracts allow). Increases will vary by product line as follows:
•Methacrylate monomers increase will range from 10 cents to 15 cents per pound
•Urethane acrylate oligomers will increase by 15 cents per pound
The price increase is due to the continuing escalation of key raw material costs that are on a tight supply situation. The increases will impact product shipments from the U.S. to the Americas, Europe and Asia.
