Nalco to Increase Prices for Specialty Paper Chemicals
Sept. 27, 2006 - Nalco Company has announced a price increase for specialty chemicals sold to paper industry customers, effective November 1.
The price increases include:
- 10 percent increase for deinking agents, tall oil acidulation
aids, coating dispersants, Alkenyl Succinic Anhydride (ASA) and
- 20 percent increase for oil-based defoamers

Nalco said the price increase is driven by continued significant increases in the cost of raw materials, energy and freight during the past two years that have not been offset by price increases.
