DuPont Performance Polymers announces price increases

DuPont Performance Polymers announces price increases effective June 15th or as contracts allow in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

The demand for plastics and rubber materials is rising. This creates tightness in materials availability and costs of key ingredients are rapidly increasing, says the company.

As a consequence prices will be increased by:

• 0.15€/kg on DuPont™ Delrin® acetal grades and DuPont™ Rynite® PET
• 0.30€/kg on DuPont™ Zytel® nylon resins, DuPont™ Zytel® HTN high-performance polyamides, DuPont™ Crastin® PBT, DuPont™ Hytrel® TPC-ET and for specialty nylons

• 2.00 €/kg for DuPont™ Viton® dipolymer and terpolymers and higher for specialties
