ATLANTA - Kemira is increasing all list and off-list pricing for its acrylic acid and acrylamide-based polymer products in North America. The increases will vary depending on the product and will be effective for all deliveries on or after March 1, 2013, or as specific contract terms allow.

While Kemira continues to take actions to minimize the impact of increasing costs, it is necessary to adjust these prices in order to compensate for the rapid and recurring increases in key raw materials used in the manufacture of the polymer product lines.
