Published on 2013-08-16. Author : SpecialChem

Arkema announces a price increase of €50/MT for its whole Evatane® (High Content Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Copolymer) range.

During the past months, the EVA market was undergoing a price erosion that affected profitability. Due to the recent price hike of Ethylene, Arkema is forced to pass this increase to the market.

Marketed under the trademark Evatane®, Arkema's EVA products are functional polyolefins used in highly diverse industrial applications, including hotmelt, cable, multilayer packaging film, technical polymer modification, solar panel, petroleum additives, bitumen and inks.
