Specialty chemicals company Lanxess has increased the prices for its Durethan and Pocan compounds in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA region). This is due to the increasing pressure on the raw material cost base, the company says.

The price increase amounts to 0.10 €/kg for Durethan A (polyamide 6.6), 0.20 €/kg for Durethan B (polyamide 6) and 0.10 €/kg for Pocan (Polybutylene terephthalate, blends).

Fields of application for products made of Durethan and Pocan are the automotive industry plus the electrical/electronics industry, construction, medicine, and the sports and leisure sectors.
