In addition to the EUR 300/T price hike announced earlier this quarter, Solvay, a leader in polyamide-based performance materials, has reported a supplementary global price increase for PA6 and PA6.6 based compounds and fibres.
The strong and continuous rise in cost of major base-chemicals, some of which have nearly doubled since the end of the fourth quarter 2016, steers Solvay Performance Polyamides to adopt a second wave of price increases of EUR 300/T for the second quarter of 2017 for its PA6 and PA6.6 based products, worldwide.
