BMS raises prices for coatings and adhesives raw materials

Product lines affected include Desmophen and Baycoll solvent-free and solvent-borne polyesters, Desmophen, Baycoll and Desmolith hydrophobic co-reactants, Desmocoll and Desmomelt solid polyurethane resins, Baypren polychloroprene and Pergut chlorinated rubber.

The company also raises prices for waterborne and UV curable products for coatings, textile, glass fibre sizing and adhesives applications, in particular for polyurethane dispersions (Bayhydrol, Impranil, Baybond and Dispercoll U), polyester dispersions (Bayhydrol), polyacrylate dispersions (Bayhydrol), UV curable products (Bayhydrol, Desmolux) and waterborne polychloroprene (Dispercoll C), in the EMEA and LATAM regions between 3 - 9 % with immediate effect.

According to BMS, substantially higher raw material and utilities cost are forcing the company to pass on these increases to the market. Current contractual agreements will be fulfilled, says BMS.
