Surface Specialties UCB Announces Price Increases On Resin Products


Surface Specialties UCB announced a price increase of 12 cents per pound for all Crylcoat polyester resins, Uvecoat UV curable resins and Additol additives master batches sold in North and South America for all orders shipped on or after Jan. 1, 2005 or as contracts allow.   
Despite company-wide efforts to reduce costs, the continuing double-digit rise in the cost of raw materials, ongoing constraints in feedstock avail-ability, rising demand overseas for the same feedstocks which are priced higher than in the U.S. plus rising associated expense necessitated the price increase, company officials said.
