AOC, a global supplier of resins, gel-coats, colorants and additives for the composites and cast polymers industries, will increase prices by US$0.06/lb in the US and CN$0.135/kg in Canada.

Increases are effective for shipments on, and after, 16 March 2012.

Collierville, Tennessee, based AOC reports that higher demand, increased feedstock costs and raw material plant turnarounds are driving up the costs of the raw materials used in resin manufacturing.
