Price Increase for Twaron, Technora and Teijinconex

21 September 2008

From October 1, 2008, Teijin Aramid will increase prices for its para-aramid products Twaron and Technora by a minimum of 8 percent.

The price for their meta-aramid product Teijnconex will increase by a minimum of 15 percent from that date. According to Teijin, ongoing cost-saving programs and other efficiency optimization measures have been unable to offset the extreme rise in costs involved in the production and transportation of aramid products.
