DSM announces Akulon® and Novamid® polyamide 6 price increase

Singapore, SG, 08 Dec 2016 10:00 CET

DSM is increasing the price for its Akulon® and Novamid® polyamide 6 unfilled polymer grades used in film, extrusion and injection molding. DSM will increase prices for polyamide polymer in Europe by €150/ton, by $0.08/lb in North America and by $180/ton in South America. These increases will take effect for all orders shipped on or after 25 December 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.
