Solvay Performance Polyamides has announced a price increase across Asia of US$300 per metric ton for its entire Technyl range of products, effective immediately.

‘The stringent environmental measures recently implemented by the Chinese government have a structural impact all along the polyamide chain in Asia, intensifying market tightness and rising supply costs,’ said Bertrand Lousteau, head of Asia-Pacific for Solvay Performance Polyamides global business unit. ‘This game-changing context makes such a price rise necessary to restore a sustainable margin level in the region.’
