Nuplex Resins, Louisville, KY, has announced a price increase for all coating resins sold in North America, effective June 4, 2007. The increase will range from 2 to 7% and will affect all solvent-based and waterborne products, including alkyds, acrylics, polyesters, emulsions and amino resins.

According to the company, the increase is the result of continued pressure for all major raw materials resulting from increasing solvents costs, historically high benzene pricing, and continued increases in soybean pricing.
