ST. PAUL, MN, March 6, 2017 (Globe Newswire) -H.B. Fuller Company announced today that, effective April 3, 2017, or as contracts allow, the Latin America Adhesives group of H.B. Fuller will increase the price for adhesives between 5 percent and 10 percent.
These increases affect products sold in Central and South America, including Mexico and Brazil, for the following applications, including but not limited to: packaging, paper converting, flexible packaging, specialty coatings, construction and assembly products, hygiene, window, glass fiber and textile. The increase is necessitated because of recent cost changes and supply constraints to feedstocks, such as propylene, ethylene, methanol, butadiene, isoprene and acetone, which have led to higher raw material costs.
Customers should contact their H.B. Fuller sales representative for more details. Product inquiries may be made toll-free by calling +506 2518 7500.
