Solenis to Increase Prices on All Polyacrylamide, Polyacrylates and Coagulant Product Lines in Russia

WILMINGTON, Del. (USA) – Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, will increase prices on all its polymer chemical product lines by 5 to 10% in Russia, effective January 1, 2018 or as customer contracts allow.

Solenis will work closely with our customers to help mitigate these cost increases as we are unable to absorb the significant increases in key raw material costs such as propylene, naphtha and acrylonitrile combined with other inflationary cost pressures associated with energy and transportation.

Solenis remains committed to controlling costs through process improvements to deliver high value and innovative solutions that you, as our valued customer, have come to expect as well as exploring investment in local polyacrylamide capacity to meet your demand for future growth.
