Date:9/1/2011

ROSWELL, Ga., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimberly-Clark Health Care (KCHC) announced today that it is implementing a double-digit price increase on synthetic exam gloves due to unprecedented demand for and rising costs of raw materials, particularly butadiene and acrylonitrile.  

"Despite aggressive cost-reduction measures, increased demand for these raw materials along with inflationary pressures have been beyond expectations," explained John Amat, Vice President, Global Sales & Marketing, KCHC. "We are unwilling to compromise on product quality, which means maintaining top-quality raw materials."
