From the 1st of May 2012 Scott Bader Europe is increasing the prices for its unsaturated polyester (UPR), vinyl ester (VER), DCPD, plus all other manufactured composite products by €90 per tonne
The price rise is once again in response to continued increases in the costs of key oil based feedstock raw materials. Bob Garner, European Sales Manager for Scott Bader Composites Europe stated:
These sustained raw material increases, which are beyond our control, effectively force our business to implement this increase. Market conditions remain volatile and uncertain as our industry attempts to mitigate these costs wherever feasible.
