Specialty chemicals company Lanxess has incresaed the prices for its Durethan and Pocan com-pounds in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA region) with immediate effect. This is due to the overall market situation in combination with ongoing developments in the material supply chains, the company says.
 
The price increase amounts to €0.25 per kg for Durethan A (polyamide 6.6), €0.15 per kg for Du-rethan B (polyamide 6) and €0.20 per kg for Pocan (PBT – Polybutylene terephthalate, blends).
