MARENTO, IL - As a result of escalating costs of basic raw materials, EPS is electing to increase prices of all acrylic, vinyl acrylic and styrenated latex emulsions 6 cents/lb effective February 1, 2014, or as contract terms permit.

Raw materials have experienced persistent inflation over the past several months and that, coupled with the recent spikes in propylene, benzene and acetone, has led to the need to increase prices.
