Effective immediately, Purolite has added a raw materials surcharge to all orders, due to unrest in the Middle East and North Africa. Petroleum-based raw materials have been quick to adjust to the increased pricing and regional volatility. Included in these raw materials are several key chemicals used in the manufacture of ion exchange resins and adsorbents. “It is our hope that the political issues that have caused these sudden increases are resolved soon, and the raw material prices return to prior levels,” said Jacob Brodie, Vice President. “Once our costs decrease, the surcharge will be removed. We thank all of our customers for their understanding during these unstable times.”?
