Praxair, Inc. and certain affiliates are notifying carbon dioxide customers in the United States and Mexico of price increases up to 15 percent.

Price adjustments may be higher or lower in accordance with individual contract provisions and will be effective Nov. 1, 2015 or as contracts permit.

These adjustments support capacity expansion and infrastructure reinvestment, and help offset rising operational costs driven by higher power, feedstock and raw material cost increases, and wages and benefits. In addition, the adjustments address supply/demand imbalances that persist in certain geographies.
