Dow Increases Polyglycols, Surfactant Prices


The Dow Chemical Co. announced that it will raise list and off-list prices on a number of products in its specialty chemicals polyglycols and surfactants portfolio in North America on June 1, 2006, or as contracts allow. The product will include: Tergitol, Triton, Dowfax, Carbowax and other polyglycols.

“While we continue to implement cost reduction and productivity improvements, increases in hydrocarbon and energy, which impacts our production, and the necessity to compete for raw material and delivery costs to remain a sustainable supplier require us to take these actions,” said David Nelson, marketing manager of polyglycols and surfactants, in a prepared statement.
