With immediate effect or as soon as contracts allow, Arkema will increase the prices of its Durastrength® acrylic impact modifiers and its Plastistrength® processing aids in Europe (incl. Russia) and Middle-East. Increases will range typically from 10 % to 18 %, depending on grades and current prices and are dictated by recent movements on main raw materials.
Arkema’s Plastistrength® processing aids help the processing of PVC by promoting fusion, improving melt strength, eliminating surface defects and decreasing plate out. They also enhance formulation metal release properties in extrusion and calendering applications while offering improved cost performance versus traditional lubricant packages.
Durastrength® acrylic impact modifiers are designed to deliver optimum cost and performance in rigid and flexible PVC applications for window profiles, siding, fence, deck, pipe and injection molding applications.
These products are manufactured in Vlissingen, The Netherlands.
