DSM to increase prices for all acrylic resins, beads and urethanes in Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Latin-America

Waalwijk, NL, 05 Nov 2010 00:00 CET

Effective December 1st or as contracts allow, DSM NeoResins+ will increase prices in Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Latin-America for all its liquid acrylic and styrene-acrylic resins, beads and urethane resins with 0,10 to 0,15€ per kg, depending on the product line and product. For some products the increase will even be higher, depending on the dynamics of the specific raw material. The price increase affects the entire Coatings, Adhesives and Graphic Arts portfolio, including NeoCryl™ waterborne acrylics and acrylic beads, NeoPac™ waterborne urethane-acrylics, NeoRez™ waterborne urethanes, NeoRez™, Uraflex™ and Solucote™ solvent borne urethanes and Uracron™ solvent borne acrylics.

Steve Hartig, business unit director DSM NeoResins+ says: “The price increase is necessitated by the continued escalation in the costs of key raw materials. These escalations are driven by a combination of sequential outages and structural capacity removal in these markets. Raw materials involved are acrylate monomers, methacrylate monomers, acrylic acid and aliphatic isocyanates to name a few.”
