Scott Bader Announces Price Hike for Manufactured Composites Range in Europe

Published on 2012-10-19. Author : SpecialChem

Scott Bader Europe is announcing a further price increase for its Crystic® range of unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester, DCPD, plus all other manufactured composite products by 110€/te. This latest price increase will be implemented from 29th October 2012, subject to existing customer contracts.

"This second price increase has been forced upon us, since the price increase implemented back in in September of 75€/te has proved insufficient to cover the recent significant escalation in raw material costs, which manufacturers cannot absorb. Scott Bader will endeavour to minimise the impact of this further price rise where practicable, but it is inevitable that all customers will have their prices revised upwards." commented Bob Garner, European Sales Manager for Scott Bader Composites Europe.
