MOGADORE, OHIO (July 21) — RohmNova will raise prices on selected coating chemicals for the paper and paperboard markets.
The price for Acumer- and Tamol-brand dispersants and Rhoplex-brand rheology modifiers will increase 3 cents per wet pound effective Aug. 15, or as contracts allow. The hike is due to continued escalation in energy, transportation and raw material costs.
RohmNova is a joint venture of Rohm and Haas Co. and Omnova Solutions Inc. The business provides coating systems for the paper and paperboard market, including latex binders, coating additives, and synthetic pigments.
