Arkema Raises Prices for High Performance Polyamides

Published on 2007-10-16. Author : SpecialChem

Effective November 1st, 2007, or as existing contracts permit, Arkema is increasing by 7% the prices of its Rilsan®, Pebax®, Platamid® and Orgalloy® high performance polyamides granules.

The amount of the increase will vary across product lines and across regions as far as currencies are concerned. Meanwhile, specialty grades are subject to higher increases, while non-fossil, bio-based grades are subject to lower increases. These price increases have been brought on by an ongoing escalation of energy, raw material and transportation costs, which previous productivity programs and price adjustments have not been able to offset.

Arkema's Technical Polymers serve the global transportation, electrical & electronics, sports, oil & gas, and other industrial and consumer markets.

With global brands like Rilsan®, Pebax® and Platamid®, unique products like Rilsan® Polyamide 11 biopolymer, and leading capacities in Rilsan® polyamide 11 and 12, Arkema's Technical Polymers business unit stands out in the industry by providing its customers with global coverage and superior regional service from production facilities and research centers in Europe, Asia, and the USA.
