BASF to increase prices for extrusion and fiber polyamides in Europe

BASF will increase prices of its Ultramid® extrusion and fiber polyamides in Europe by € 150 per metric ton with immediate effect. The price adjustment is necessary due to the strong increase in raw material costs. BASF continues its efforts to offset rising costs in a difficult environment. However, the extraordinary market conditions force BASF to implement this price increase, announced the company.

BASF´s Ultramid extrusion and fiber polyamides are used for producing films for food packaging and industrial use, for manufacturing monofilaments, for wire jacketing, for carpet and textile fibers.
