DSM announces Akulon and Novamid polyamide 6 polymer price increases for Europe and the Americas

As a result of increasing raw material prices DSM will increase the price for its Akulon® and Novamid® polyamide 6 polymers. DSM will increase prices by € 100/t in Europe, and by $0.10/lb in North and South America. These increases will take effect for all orders shipped on or after February 1, 2014 where contracts allow.

While DSM continues to pursue and implement cost savings initiatives targeted at absorbing the impact of the raw material escalations, this additional increase is necessary to ensure DSM’s sustainable long-term position as leading supplier of engineering plastics.More information can be found at www.akulon.com and www.novamid.com..
