Dow: Price increase for polyols and isocyanates in Europe

Roughly a month and a half after it announced price increases for polyols, toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and methyl diphenyl isocanate (MDI) in the Middle East, Africa and India, Dow Polyurethanes (Midland, Michigan / USA; www.dowpolyurethanes.com) has said it will raise prices for these feedstocks in Europe as well.

Effective 1 March 2010, the group will charge an additional EUR 200/t for polyols and MDI, whereas the price of TDI will be raised by EUR 250/t. Dow said it hoped the hike would help restore its margins.
