Solenis to Increase Prices on Polyacrylamides and Acrylamide Monomer across North America and EMEA


April 11, 2019 - Solenis announced that it will increase prices on all polyacrylamides and acrylamide monomer across the North America and EMEA regions, effective immediately. This price increase is necessary due to the steep increase of key feedstock material costs, Solenis said.

“Several Force Majeure situations at major acrylonitrile producers in EMEA and North America have caused a shortage in product availability and significant cost increases. Acrylonitrile is the key raw material for making acrylamide monomer and polyacrylamide polymers used in paper making, municipal water treatment, mining and oil & gas applications,” Solenis explained.

“Solenis is making every effort to overcome this shortage and secure the supply of polyacrylamides to our customers,” the company added.

Solenis is a leading global producer of specialty chemicals for water intensive industries, including the pulp and paper industry. To learn more, please visit:
