CARY, NC - Effective September 23, 2014, or as contracts allow, Arkema Coating Resins will increase pricing on all latex products sold in North America.

The prices for ENCOR® and SNAP® acrylic, styrene-acrylic and styrene-butadiene latexes, NEOCAR® acrylic latexes, Celocor® opaque polymer, ENCOR vinyl-acrylic, vinyl acetate-ethylene latexes, NEOCAR latexes and ENCOR styrene-acrylic hard resins will increase by $0.02 to $0.04 per wet pound, or per pound for hard resins. 

This action is necessary due to escalation in the cost of key raw materials.
