Scott Bader Europe is announcing a price increase for its Crystic range of unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester, DCPD, plus all other manufactured composite products by 70-90 €/te, dependent on product type. This price increase will be implemented by latest 1st October 2013, subject to existing customer contracts.
Bob Garner, European Sales Manager for Scott Bader Composites Europe said;
As a consequence of various raw materials being in short supply and continued oil price pressure on downstream feed stocks, this has inevitably led to traders and producers increasing rates over the summer months, with additional increases confirmed for September. Regrettably we are unable to continue to absorb these significant extra costs and have no choice but to implement this price increase
