Jul 29, 2014, 13:43 ET from H.B. Fuller Company

ST. PAUL, Minn., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE: FUL) announced today that, effective August 15, 2014, or as contracts allow, the North America Polymer group of H.B. Fuller will increase the price for all vinyl acetate-based emulsion polymer products. Vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) copolymers, vinyl acrylics and PVAc homopolymers will increase by up to $0.03 USD per wet pound. This price increase includes the PACE®, Plyamul®, Copro® and Elvace® product brands.

The increase affects applications sold in the U.S. and Canada, including but not limited to: adhesives, construction and building products, nonwovens, glass fiber, carpet and textile. The increase is necessitated by the continued shortage of vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) and ever increasing purchasing costs. VAM is a key component in the manufacture of these products. 

Customers should contact their H.B. Fuller sales representative for more information. Details on H.B. Fuller's PACE, Plyamul, Copro and Elvace products can be found online at www.hbfuller.com. Product inquiries also can be made toll-free at 888-351-3521.
