BASF’s Paper Chemicals Division, Charlotte, N.C., USA, will increase prices of sizing chemicals, colorants, and polymers for strength, fixation, and water management sold into the North American paper market, effective January 15 or as contract terms allow. The price increases range from 5% to 15%, depending on the product. This action is necessary to offset raw material cost increases, the company notes.

BASF Corp., headquartered in Florham Park, N.J., USA, is the North American affiliate of BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany.
