Du Pont Engineering Polymers : 01 November, 2004  (Company News)
DuPont Engineering Polymers today announced additional price increases effective 1 January 2005 in Europe, Middle East and Africa for a number of its products.
DuPont Engineering Polymers today announced additional price increases effective 1 January 2005 in Europe, Middle East and Africa for a number of its products.

These are:
*DuPont Zytel nylon and DuPont Minlon products will increase by a minimum of EUR 0.25/kg.

*DuPont Crastin PBT products will increase by a minimum of EUR 0.15/kg.

*DuPont Delrin acetal products will increase by a minimum of EUR 0.15/kg

*DuPont Hytrel thermoplastic polyester elastomer products will increase by a minimum of EUR 0.15/kg.

*DuPont Zytel HTN high performance polyamide, DuPont Zenite LCP, DuPont Rynite PET, and DuPont Thermx high performance polyester products will increase by a minimum of EUR 0.20/kg.

*Specialty grades and colours in all product families will, in certain cases, increase by a larger amount. Prices for small shipment sizes will also increase further.

According to DuPont these increases are in response to further steep rises in costs for energy and raw materials, and are being implemented to secure supply and services at the level customers expect. The company continuously strives to offset escalating costs with productivity programs and other containment measures; however the magnitude of the continuing rises in costs, coupled with strong demand, makes these price increases unavoidable.

DuPont Engineering Polymers serves the global automotive, appliance, electrical/electronics, aerospace, sporting goods and other industrial and consumer markets.
