Arkema: Price increase of EVA copolymers

Arkema announced a price increase of 100 €/MT for its whole Evatane® EVA (High Content Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Copolymer) range starting March 1, 2013.

According to Arkema, the EVA market was undergoing a price erosion during the past months that affected profitability. In view of the coming price hike of Ethylene in March, Arkema feels forced to pass this increase to the market.

Marketed under the trademark Evatane®, Arkema´s EVA products are used in highly diverse industrial applications, including hotmelt, cables, multilayer packaging films, technical polymers modification, solar panels, petroleum additives, bitumens and inks.
