DSM Engineering Materials increases price for Akulon® PA6 polymer and compound grades

Geleen, NL, 30 Sept 2021 09:00 CEST

With unprecedented raw materials increases in the PA6 value chain and steep rises of utility and energy costs, DSM Engineering Materials needs to increase the price for its Akulon® polyamide 6 polymer and compound grades in Europe and South America.

  • Akulon® polymer prices will increase with 350 Eur/t
  • Akulon® compound prices will increase with 250 Eur/t

This increase will be effective on October 1st, where contracts and agreements allow.

For Akulon® compounds the abovementioned price increase is on top of the increases for other raw materials such as glass fibers and flame retardants.

While DSM Engineering Materials continues to pursue and implement cost saving initiatives, this increase is necessary to ensure DSM’s sustainable long-term position as leading supplier of engineering plastics.
