DSM announces Akulon® and Novamid® polyamide 6 price increase

Singapore, SG, 05 Apr 2019 15:00 SGT/09:00 CEST

DSM announces price increases for its Akulon® and Novamid® polyamide 6 unfilled polymer grades for film, extrusion and unfilled injection moulding in Europe, Middle East, Africa, North America and in Asia Pacific to compensate for increased costs of raw materials and other costs over the past period with immediate effect, where contracts and prior agreements allow.

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