Surface Chemistry

Revenue in Surface Chemistry increased by 11 percent compared to last year. The increase is primarily from higher pricing driven by increasing raw material costs for fats and oils. Demand improved slightly compared to a good Q3 last year. All geographic regions are contributing and the improvement is in most market sectors. Compared to last year, we have good growth in the agriculture, mining and the petroleum segments with some continued weakness in the consumer-related applications.
