FAIRLAWN, OH – OMNOVA Solutions and its recently acquired ELIOKEM business announced a price increase in North America of $0.04 to $0.06 per pound for Pliotec® acrylic and styrene acrylic resins, depending on the grade, and three percent for Pliolite® and Plioway® acrylic copolymer dry resins. The increase will be effective on Feb. 1, 2011, or as contracts allow, and is necessary to offset the rise in the cost of raw materials used in the production of these products.
