DSM announces Akulon® and Novamid® polyamide 6 price increase for Europe

Singapore, SG, 30 Mar 2016 09:00 CEST

As a result of increasing raw material prices DSM will increase the price for its Akulon® and Novamid® polyamide 6 polymers and compounds. DSM will increase prices in Europe by €120/t for polyamide polymer, and by €85/t for polyamide compounds. These increases will take effect for all orders shipped on or after 1 April 2016 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.
