PeroxyChem to Increase Prices for High-Purity Hydrogen Peroxide

PeroxyChem announced today that effective October 1, 2014, or as contracts permit, it will increase prices for all high-purity electronics grades of hydrogen peroxide. The amount of the increase will be $0.03/lb (31 percent basis).

This price increase is required to ensure that we are able to meet the growing demand for these specialty grades of hydrogen peroxide that are critical to the semiconductor manufacturing process. Continued investment in plant and distribution assets is required to meet increasingly challenging quality requirements as semiconductor technology evolves.
