BASF increases prices for polymer dispersions, polymer powders and resins
With effect from October 15, 2013, or as contracts allow, BASF will increase prices in Europe, Africa and Western Asia for straight acrylic and acrylic styrene polymer dispersions by up to 80 Euro per metric ton and for redispersible acrylic powders and acrylic resins by up to 120 Euro per metric ton. The price increase is necessary due to the significant rise in the cost of raw materials.
The products affected by the price increase are used as polymers for construction chemicals and fiber bonding.
