BASF to increase prices for PCE based polymers for concrete admixtures in Europe

With immediate effect, BASF is increasing prices for their polycarboxylate ether (PCE) based polymers for concrete admixtures in Europe (Melflux brand) by 10-12%. Contractual agreements with customers are being kept. This increase has become necessary in an environment of rising freight and logistics costs as well as raw material costs for basic and intermediate chemicals.
