LANXESS increases prices for hydrazine hydrate

Specialty chemicals company LANXESS is to increase prices worldwide for its hydrazine hydrate, Levoxin and dihydrazine product groups by 10 percent, effective July 1, 2010. These price increases are made necessary by the strong rise in raw material costs along with more expensive energy and logistics charges.

LANXESS is one of the leading companies in the manufacture and marketing of hydrazine hydrate that covers a very broad spectrum of applications. The clear, colorless liquid is used, for example, in the chemical synthesis of active agricultural and pharmaceutical ingredients, in chemical intermediates, for corrosion protection in steam and water circuits and as a blowing agent in thermoplastic resins and elastomers.
