H.B. Fuller Announces Synthetic Polymers Price Increase Sold in North America
October 21, 2016

ST. PAUL, Minnesota, U.S. - H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE: FUL) announced today that, effective December 1, 2016, or as contracts allow, the North America Polymer group of H.B. Fuller will increase the price for all emulsion polymer products. Vinyl acetate homopolymers and vinyl acrylic copolymers will increase by up to $0.03 USD per wet pound. Styrene acrylics and all acrylics will increase by up to $0.04 USD per wet pound, and vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) copolymers, will increase by up to $0.05 USD per wet pound. This price increase includes the PACE®, Plyamul®, Copro® and Elvace® product brands.

These increases affect applications sold in the U.S. and Canada, including but not limited to: adhesives, specialty coatings, construction and building products, nonwovens, glass fiber and textile applications.  The increase is necessitated because of recent cost changes to key drivers such as propylene, ethylene, methanol, benzene and acetone, which have led to higher monomer costs.  

Customers should contact their H.B. Fuller sales representative for more details. More information about H.B. Fuller’s polymer products may be found online at www.hbfuller.com. Product inquiries may be made toll-free by calling 888-351-3521.
