Solenis has announced it will increase prices on all polyacrylamides and acrylamide monomer across the North America and EMEA regions, effective immediately.
According to a company press release, the price increase is necessary due to the steep increase of key feedstock material costs.
“Several Force Majeure situations at major acrylonitrile producers in EMEA and North America have caused a shortage in product availability and significant cost increases,” states Solenis.
Acrylonitrile is the key raw material for making acrylamide monomer and polyacrylamide polymers used in paper making, municipal water treatment, mining and oil and gas applications.
