KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., June 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arkema will be
increasing prices on its Luperox® and Vul-Cup® organic peroxide products in
the Americas by $0.10 - $0.20/lb. ($0.22 - $0.44/kg), effective June 30, 2013,
or as contracts allow. This adjustment is necessitated by increases in raw
material and transportation costs, particularly for controlled temperature
products, as well as safety and regulatory investments needed for reliable
supply.
