Ashland Performance Materials, a commercial unit of Ashland Inc., announced it will increase South American prices for unsaturated polyester resins, epoxy vinyl ester resins and gelcoats sold into the composites market by USD $0.17 per kilogram.

The new prices will be effective beginning Sept. 1, 2012, or as contracts allow.
