Evonik increases prices for superabsorbent polymers

Essen, Germany, May 4, 2018

Evonik raises the prices for its superabsorbent polymers, offered in Europe and the Americas, up to 15% with immediate effect. All existing contracts will be honored and are not affected by the price increase.

The price increase has become unavoidable to compensate higher raw material costs.

This adjustment will enable the business line Baby Care to continue to provide to its customers a superior quality, excellent service with special focus on supply reliability.
