Kemira, a global chemicals company, announces price increases for inorganic coagulants in North America for the customers of the Industry & Water and Pulp & Paper segments. The price increase is necessary due to significant increases in market pricing of aluminum and iron feedstocks, and chlor-alkali raw materials impacting inorganic coagulants. Additionally, the cost of moving our raw materials and finished goods via rail continues to escalate.
The price increase will vary by product group and may be significantly higher for specific chemistry and plant locations. The new prices will be effective for all deliveries of the products listed below from April 1, 2021 or as contract terms allow.
|Product line||Price increase|
|Iron Chlorides||10 – 20%|
|Iron Sulfates||3 – 10%|
|Aluminum Coagulants||3 – 10%|
Kemira is committed as a long-standing reliable supplier of high quality products to our customers. We will continue to work to mitigate the cost increases and ensure reliable supply of high quality products for your operations.
