MARENGO, IL - EPS announced that it will raise prices for all acrylics, styrene acrylics, PVAs and PUDs by 4 cents/lb. effective July 23, 2018. The company stated that the price increase is a result of persistent inflation and product shortages on a wide range of commodities including propylene and acrylate/methacrylate esters used in the production of acrylic monomers. The company also pointed to rising freight costs as a contributing factor to the overall cost pressure.
