Ashland Performance Materials, a commercial unit of Ashland Inc., is increasing the prices of its Derakane epoxy vinyl ester resins, unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs) and gelcoats portfolio sold in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) by 100 euros per ton.

This increase, which is effective immediately or at the earliest possible time depending on customer contracts, is in addition to the identical price increase which was announced on Jan. 16 and which took effect Feb. 1, 2012.

The pricing action is primarily driven by the continued escalation in costs for key raw materials at Ashland’s manufacturing units. Responding to changing market conditions allows Ashland to continue to provide innovative products and industry-leading support that add value for customers.
