In addition to the 300€/T price hike announced earlier this quarter, Solvay has announced a supplementary global price increase for its PA6 and PA6.6 based compounds and fibers.

‘The strong and continuous rise in cost of major base-chemicals, some of which have nearly doubled since end-Q4 2016, steers Solvay Performance Polyamides to adopt a second wave of price increases of 300€/T for Q2-2017 for its PA6 and PA6.6 based products, worldwide,’ the company said.
