With immediate effect, or as contract terms permit, Evonik will increase globally prices for all Polyurethane Additives. The increase will be 5-10% depending on product type including TEGOSTAB® silicone stabilizers, TEGOAMIN® catalysts, GORAPUR® release agents and ORTEGOL® products.
Tin based catalysts (KOSMOS®) will be dealt with separately.
Evonik has worked diligently and will continue working to offset continuously rising raw material, energy, labour and transportation costs, however, it is not possible to absorb all of these rising costs. Evonik will increase polyurethane additive prices in order to continue to meet the needs of our customers in the future.
