Archroma: 20% price increase for fluorochemical range
The producer of dyes and specialty chemicals Archroma Management LLC, Reinach/Switzerland, has announced an increase of up to 20% in the selling prices of its Nuva N and Fluowet fluorocarbon polymers.
Fluorocarbon polymers are typically used in essential applications where a water and/or oil barrier is needed, such as personal protective equipment (PPE) for health professionals, or other technical textiles.
The price increase has become necessary to support the increasing regulatory and other costs, as well as ongoing investments. It will be effective, in all regions and markets, for all new orders and as contracts allow.
