Specifically, the hike, which applies to the Middle East, Africa and India, concerns toluene diisocyanate (TDI), which will cost an additional USD 250/t, as well as flexible polyols and methyl diphenyl isocanate (MDI), to increase by USD 150/t.

The group said the increase was tied to rising feedstock and energy costs.
