Increasingly tight supply and delayed turnarounds, at key raw material production facilities, continues to further escalate raw material prices, necessitating the need for us to pass on an additional increase to our customers. We appreciate your continued loyalty and understanding as we work to minimize the impact these increases have on our customers. Your local Reichhold representative will contact you to relay product specific increase amounts.
