AOC Increases Global Prices for Vinyl Ester Products

06 February 2018

AOC has announced a price increase for all vinyl ester products in the amount of US$0.10/lb for global markets outside of the US and Canada.

This increase is effective for all shipments on, or after, 3 February 2018.

This does not impact the US and Canadian markets where a price increase was previously announced on 11 January 2018.

The company reports that this action is due to significant increases in key raw materials and supply-demand imbalances affecting the materials and their feedstocks.
