Solenis raises prices on some papermaking chemicals

April 11, 2019 – Solenis, a global producer of specialty chemicals, is increasing prices on all polyacrylamides and acrylamide monomer across the North America and EMEA regions, effective immediately.

The company says this price increase is necessary due to the steep increase of key feedstock material costs.

Several unforeseen 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.

The company says it is making every effort to overcome this shortage and secure the supply of polyacrylamides to its customers.
