Baspar / Iranpolymer The resin producers are turning the price screw every month. Polynt (Italy) wants to make unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resins more expensive at the turn of the year due to higher costs for energy and CO2 certificates. For both product groups, processors can expect an increase of 180 EUR/t. Competitor AOC (Switzerland) is planning surcharges of 200 EUR/t for the EMEA region.
Allnex (Germany), which focuses on resins for coating applications, has meanwhile increased prices for phenolic resins of the brands “Phenodur”, “Alnovol” and “Alpex” around 150 to 1,000 EUR worldwide/t raised.
