We Are Updating Our Prices!

While 2020 is behind us, the onslaught of crisis and disruptions is still not over.  Pandemic-induced supply shocks are still reverberating globally.  Those have only been worsened by a slew of events that are severely impacting the chemical market, including weather disasters like the freeze in Texas and even the closing of the Suez Canal.  Even as the direct impact of those events fade, the wild changes in global demand and the difficulty for suppliers and shipping companies to meet it have created the most volatile marketplace in a very long time.

Given this, we are facing cost increases across the board from our commodity suppliers that are forcing us to adjust our pricing.  We won’t sugar-coat it: Some price changes are going to be extreme.  Please know we have been doing and will continue to do our best to minimize price increases, and we expect some to hopefully return to normal as the market readjusts over the coming months.

Here is the situation:

Many products derived from petroleum, in particular Acetone, Isopropyl Alcohol, but also possibly Hexane and Heptane, could potentially double in cost.  These are the products most likely to return to lower, "normal" pricing over time, but right now we are having issues and delays simply getting these materials in stock.

There will be 10-15% increases on virtually all other solvents and raw chemicals.

Ethyl Alcohol and associated products (like 710 Spirits®) should not be impacted at this time.

We understand this is disruptive and do not make price changes lightly.  Due to the enormous array of products that we carry from a myriad of suppliers, it will take time to fully adjust all pricing, so updated pricing will be modified gradually on a rolling basis. If you have specific price inquiries please reach out by either calling 877-762-0802 or emailing us at info@rmreagents.com and we will do our best to provide the most up-to-date pricing as it becomes available.

We will continue to be your dependable source of quality chemistry products as we all navigate these challenges together.  We appreciate your patience, understanding, and continuing business.
