Kemira increases prices for AKD based products in the APAC region 

the Finnish chemicals supplier Kemira will implement a price increase of 10-30% for selected AKD (alkyl ketene dimer) wax based sizing products in APAC. The price adjustment will be effective immediately or as the existing AKD contracts allow. The decision is triggered by continuous cost increases of main raw materials, energy, logistics and HSE regulatory compliance requirements. AKD wax is the main raw material for AKD sizing products.

Kemira says it remains committed to mitigating the impact of these challenging market conditions while providing the highest quality products and services to its customers.
