Arkema: Price increases for high performance polyamides

Effective August 1st, 2010, or as existing contracts permit, Arkema is increasing by 8 to 12% the prices of its Rilsan® high performance polyamides granules. The amount of the increase will vary across grades and product lines and across regions.

These price increases have been brought on by an ongoing escalation of energy, raw material and transportation costs, which previous productivity programs and price adjustments have not been able to offset, announced the company.

Arkema's Technical Polymers serve the global transportation, electrical & electronics, sports, oil & gas, and other industrial and consumer markets.
