The price increase of €100/tonne comes into effect on 1 August 2009.

Reichhold, headquartered in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA, says that recent significant escalation of prices of all key feedstock and raw materials utilised to manufacture polyester resins and related products has made this price increase necessary.

Reichhold’s composite brands are: POLYLITE®, HYDREX®, NORPOL®, and DION®.
