KMG said that the price hikes were due to the ongoing increases in raw material prices as well as transportation costs due to the increases in the cost of fuel.

The prices rises are due to come into effect on May 1st, 2008. KMG acquired HPPC from Air Products and Chemicals at the end of 2007, which supplies surface preparation chemicals to the semiconductor industry.
