DSM announces Akulon® and Novamid® polyamide 6 price increase

Singapore, SG, 18 Jan 2017 10:30 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 €250/ton, by $0.12/lb in North America and by $250/ton in South America. These increases will take effect for all orders shipped on or after 30 January 2017, where contracts allow.

The additional price increases have been inevitable due to the unexpected steep increase in the price of raw material for the PA6 polymer.
