Kemira, a global chemicals company, announces price increases for all polymer products in the EMEA Industry & Water segment, serving water treatment customers as well as the oil and gas industry.

The price increases will vary based on different product types and may be significantly higher in specific countries. New prices will be effective for all deliveries from October 15th, 2018 or as contract terms allow.

Product Line Product family Price increase (%)
Polymers Emulsions 7-15%
  Powders 7-15%
  Polyamines 8-15%
  Polyacrylate Dispersants 5-6%
