Styron: Price increases for polycarbonate and PC compounds & blends in Europe

Styron Europe GmbH and its affiliate companies in Europe announced price increases for all CALIBRE™ polycarbonate and EMERGE™ polycarbonate compound & blends products. Effective September 1, or as existing contract terms allow, the price for these products will rise by 250 Euro per metric ton.

"Our margins have continued to erode and it has reached a point where operating under these conditions has become unsustainable,” said Nicolas Joly, Product Market Manager, Europe & MEAI. "We have worked with our customers to avoid increasing prices for as long as we can, but unfortunately we can no longer put off the inevitable, which is to raise prices.”
