LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF SE has increased prices for all its Kaurit and Kauramin glues by €15 per metric tonne in Europe, on top of fluctuations in raw material prices as of the month of July. The price increase is necessary due to higher costs for personnel, maintenance and logistics.

Kaurit and Kauramin glues are condensation products of urea and formaldehyde. Kauramin additionally contains melamine. Both Kaurit und Kauramin glues are specifically developed for the efficient production of any wood-based material – from a chip and fibre boards to Oriented strand board (OSBs).
