Ascend: Price increases for "Vydyne" products in Europe

Ascend Performance Materials Inc., a leading producer of PA66 resin and chemical intermediates, has announced a price increase for all "Vydyne" products. The increase will be effective as of February 15, 2014, unless governed by other contractual arrangements.

In Europe, prices will increase as follows:

Ascend and "Vydyne" unfilled grades: €0.25/kg
"Vydyne" compounds: €0.15/kg

This price increase reflects industry-wide raw material cost increases, and while Ascend Performance Materials has been able to absorb some of the impact of these increases, this move is necessary to safeguard Ascend's ability to meet customer needs in terms of quality, security of supply, consistency and sustainability, says the company.
