BARCELONA, SPAIN, January 26, 2018 - Ashland today announced it will increase the price of its portfolio of UPR and gelcoat products in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) by 100 Euros per metric ton and its portfolio of epoxy vinyl ester products by 150 Euros per metric ton. This increase will take effect February 1, 2018, or as soon as possible thereafter as contracts allow. This increase is in addition to the increase announcement of December 8, 2017.
This increase is primarily driven by continued escalation of
costs in key raw materials including styrene, liquid epoxy resins (LERs) and glycols. Ashland continues to make these decisions with the intent to ensure it is servicing customers with the utmost quality and performance and the ability to continue reinvesting in its product line.
