DSM announces Akulon and Novamid polyamide 6 compound price increase for Europe and the Americas

Singapore, SG, 07 Feb 2014 10:30 CET

As a result of increasing raw material prices DSM will increase the price for its Akulon® and Novamid® polyamide 6 compounds. DSM will increase prices by € 100/t in Europe, and by $0.10/lb in North and South America. This increase will take effect for all orders shipped on or after March 1, 2014 where contracts allow.

While DSM continues to pursue and implement cost savings initiatives targeted at absorbing the impact of the raw material escalations, this additional increase is necessary to ensure DSM’s sustainable long-term position as leading supplier of engineering plastics.
