WILMINGTON, DE, April 11, 2019 (Press Release) -Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, will increase prices on all polyacrylamides and acrylamide monomer across the North America and EMEA regions, effective immediately. This price increase is necessary due to the steep increase of key feedstock material costs.
