Dow Adhesives and Functional Polymers will implement a price increase for all acrylic and acrylic-based products sold to the pressure sensitive, construction, textile-nonwoven, and graphic arts markets. The increase of $0.09 per lb. will take effect immediately or as contracts allow. The increase will affect all acrylic and styrene-acrylic emulsions, vinyl-acetate based emulsions, and solution polymers.

In making the announcement, Patrice Barthelmes, Business Group Vice President of Adhesives and Functional Polymers, cited the continuing escalation in raw material costs as necessitating the increases.

Together these businesses offer an integrated technology platform with formulation capabilities and a capacity to serve tailored needs globally.

A business group within Dow's Advanced Material Division, Dow Adhesives and Functional Polymers generates $1B of revenue while operating a network of over 40 Technical, R&D and Manufacturing sites to serve local customer needs globally.
