Sekisui hikes PVOH prices worldwide

October 19/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Sekisui Specialty Chemicals announced today that it will increase the price of Selvol Polyvinyl Alcohol, Selvol Ultiloc, Selvol Ultalux and Selvol Premiol up to USD150/mT globally, said Chemweek.

Sekisui Specialty Chemicals remains committed to meeting customers' needs with high quality products. The increase will take effect November 1, 2020, or as contracts and agreements allow. Customers should contact their local Sekisui sales representative for more details.

As MRC informed earlier, Sekisui Chemical has commenced the production of thermal interface materials for environment-friendly vehicles at Roermond, the Netherlands. Sekisui Chemical has established a new company, Sekisui Polymatech, based in the Netherlands.

As per MRC, Russia's output of chemical products rose in August 2020 by 5% year on year. At the same time, production of basic chemicals increased year on year by 5.3% in the first eight months of 2020. According to the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation, polymers in primary form accounted for the greatest increase in the January-July output. August production of benzene fell to 102,000 tonnes from 95,300 tonnes a month earlier due to scheduled shutdowns for maintenance at several producers. Overall output of this product reached 918,300 tonnes over the stated period, down by 0.9% year on year.

Sekisui Specialty Chemicals' primary product is Selvol, a line of high performance polyvinyl alcohol polymers and copolymers used in paper, adhesive, packaging, construction, personal care, and many other specialty formulations.   The company also represents Durastream CPVC compounds and resins, Advancell expandable microspheres, and S-LEC BK polyvinyl acetal resins. Sekisui Specialty Chemicals is a subsidiary of the Sekisui Chemical Group, a multibillion dollar, global company that delivers a wide range of products and services to enrich people's lives.  The company is comprised of core businesses and technologies in housing, social infrastructure, and chemical solutions.
