Scott Bader Increases Prices of its Manufactured Composites Range in Europe

28 August 2012

Scott Bader Europe is increasing the prices for its Crystic range of unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester, DCPD, plus all other manufactured composite products by 75€/te.

Scott Bader explains the price increase will be implemented from 17th September 2012, subject to existing customer contracts. It says the price rise is necessary following recent raw material volatility and upward pressure on raw materials driven by higher crude oil prices, leading to higher costs for feed materials including Benzene, Styrene, Ethylene and Propylene.

Bob Garner, European Sales Manager for Scott Bader Composites Europe stated “Scott Bader realises the fragile market conditions and the impact of additional price increases to our customers, but we are unable to absorb further costs and are forced to pass on these additional increases. Our Sales managers will be in contact with customers to agree implementation and where possible identify alternative savings.”
