28 February 2017

LANXESS further increases the prices for its Durethan (PA 6, PA 6.6) compounds in Europe, Middle East and Africa with effect from 1 March 2017.

The adjustment is resulting from the continuing pressure on the raw material cost base. The price increase amounts to 0.25 EUR/kg for Durethan A (polyamide 6.6) and 0.20 EUR/kg for Durethan B (polyamide 6).

LANXESS’s engineering plastics of the brand Durethan are mainly used for applications in the automotive industry plus the electrical/electronics industry.
