Styron: Price increases for polystyrene and copolymers in Europe

Styron Europe GmbH and its affiliate companies in Europe announced price increases for all polystyrene and copolymer grades. Effective immediately, or as existing contract terms allow, the May contract and spot prices for the products listed below, will increase as follows:

• STYRON™ general purpose polystyrene grades (GPPS), STYRON™ and STYRON A-TECH™ high impact polystyrene grades (HIPS) by 50 Euro per metric ton

• MAGNUM™ ABS resins and TYRIL™ SAN resins by 35 Euro per metric ton

The price increase responds to the rising costs associated with the manufacturing of polystyrene and copolymers grades in Europe.
