Dow Chemical Co., Midland, Mich., has increased its list and off-list prices for propylene-glycol-based low-temperature thermal fluids in North America, including concentrates and diluted products.

Supply and demand "imbalances in the petrochemical value chain dictate that we take immediate action to restore margins and continue meeting product supply requirements in the long term," Pete Pendergast, marketing manager of the Americas, Heat Transfer Fluids and DPO, said. "While Dow continues to implement cost reduction and productivity improvement programs, these actions alone are not enough to mitigate the current economic environment and allow us to compete for raw materials."
