AOC has announced a price increase of $0.10/lb for all its products sold in the USA, Canada, Mexico and Latin America.

It has also increased prices by €100-200 per ton (depending on resin chemistry) for its range of unsaturated polyester (UPR) and epoxy vinyl ester (VE) resins, and sizings and binders products sold in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

This increase is due to continuing and escalation of costs for key raw material ingredients and freight, the company said. ‘In addition, the availability of key raw materials from our contract suppliers has been severely hampered and we are continuing to have to resort to other, significantly more expensive, sources, said Fons Harbers, VP at AOC.
