BASF increases prices for resins and additives in Europe


Effective immediately, BASF increases prices in Europe for resins and additives for the coatings, printing and packaging industries by 5 - 12 % as existing contracts allow. The price increase affects, but is not limited to, the following product ranges: Laromer®, Joncryl®, Basonat®, Luwipal®, Luhydran® and Acronal®.
