Effective 1 February, Bayer MaterialScience (BMS, Leverkusen / Germany; www.bayerbms.com) implemented a EUR 300/t price increase for polycarbonate resins sold in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. The hike, which does not affect existing agreements, applies to all products sold under the "Makrolon”, "Bayblend”, "Makroblend” und "APEC” trademarks.

BMS said the increase reflects the unsatisfactory economic situation as well as a substantial rise in raw materials and energy costs.
