Polynt Composites has announced a price increase of €200/ton on its full range of unsaturated polyester resin (UPR), €300/t on its full range of vinylester and €100/t for its full range of gelcoats.

This sales price increase will be effective from 1 January, or as agreements allow, in Europe, Middle East and Africa, the company said.

According to Polynt, this follows an ‘extraordinary escalation’ of UPR raw materials as well as an increase in logistic costs. ‘Polynt Composites will continue to work hard to limit the impact of rising costs and raw material availability upon product pricing and supply,’ a press release said.
