Kemira to Increase Prices of Polymer Products Globally in Pulp & Paper Segment


Oct. 1, 2018 - Kemira has announced price increases for all polymer products globally in the Pulp & Paper segment. The new prices will be effective for all deliveries from October 15, 2018 or as contract terms allow.

The price increases will vary based on different product types and may be significantly higher in specific countries, Kemira noted.

Emulsions: 7-15%
Powders: 7-15%
Polyamines: 8-15%

In a press release, Kemira said, “These price increases are necessary as the prices for the main raw materials for polymers, together with tight supply and strong demand in the downstream polymer market, have all continued to increase during 2018 and are expected to further increase in 2019.”
