OMNOVA Solutions’ Specialty
Chemicals business has
a surcharge on styrene butadiene based
polymers, beginning today, for coatings,
tape & adhesives, nonwovens, and more.
The surcharge comes in response to increased butadiene costs from suppliers, due to shortages of a key butadiene feedstock. The shortages are affecting all butadiene users in the United States, particularly large-volume manufacturers who produce styrene butadiene rubber.
