Effective March 15, 2010, Evonik will increase prices for all Polyurethane Additives as contracts permit. The increase ranges from 5-10% depending on product type and includes TEGOSTAB® silicone stabilizers, GORAPUR® release agents, TEGOAMIN® catalysts and ORTEGOL® products.
Tin-based catalysts (KOSMOS) will be dealt with separately.
Evonik has worked and will continue to work diligently to offset rising raw material and energy costs. However, it is not possible to absorb these increases and still provide the services Evonik customers value in the future.
