Princeton, N.J., November 20, 2020

Solvay announces today the implementation of a global price adjustment on certain product lines from its Mining Solutions business, part of the Group’s Technology Solutions global business unit. The price adjustment addresses sustained cost pressures associated with global supplies, logistics and packaging. It also enables Solvay to continue creating value for customers through new product development, technical service and reliability of supply.

The 5% adjustment is effective immediately or as contracts permit. Products subject to this price adjustment are ACORGA® extraction reagents; AERO® promoters; AERODRI® surfactants; AEROFLOAT® promoters; AEROFROTH® frothers; AEROMINE® promoters; AEROPHINE® promoters; CYANEX® extraction reagents; CYBREAK® defoamers; CYFLOC® flocculants; CYQUEST® modifiers; and OREPREP® frothers. Due to additional cost pressure, Solvay is announcing a price adjustment of 10% for its scale inhibitors (MAX HT® and PHOSFLOW®) and ACCO-PHOS® depressants.

For additional details, contact a Solvay sales or customer service representative.
