Sika will raise prices for various products, particularly for the Sikaflex® family of adhesives, by up to 5%.

Burgeoning, broad-based market vitality and related increases in demand for goods and raw materials led to a renewed rise in purchasing costs during the first half of 2006. Sika was not spared the effects of these developments. In response Sika’s management has decided to raise selling prices by up to 5% for various products worldwide, in particular the polyurethane-based Sikaflex® product line.
