LANXESS to increase prices for Durethan® compounds in North America

Pittsburgh, PA – April 25, 2017– LANXESS will increase its prices for Durethan compounds in North America effective May 1, 2017, as follows:

• Durethan A (Polyamide 6.6): $0.12/lb.
• Durethan B (Polyamide 6): $0.12/lb.

Despite ongoing cost saving efforts, this measure is necessary due to continued cost pressure on some key raw materials.  These increases are in addition to our earlier announcement.  Higher increases may be needed for some specialty grades.  Existing agreements will be honored.
