Polynt Composites has announced a price increase effective for all new deliveries shipped on or after 7 April 2015, of €150/ton. This increase will affect all unsaturated polyester resins, vinyl ester resins, gel coats and other related products.

This price increase is a consequence of the very sharp increase in the cost of styrene and the continued escalation in cost for other key raw materials, the company says.

It adds that it will continue to work hard to limit the impact of rising costs and limited raw material availability upon product pricing and supply.
