Effective June 1, 2015 or as existing contracts allow, Sartomer Europe
will increase prices of its monomers and oligomers sold in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). This increase, ranging from 4% to 8% depending on the product families, is a consequence of the recent rise of the feedstocks, cumulating with the weakening of the euro against the dollar. This resulted in a significant cost increase of the key raw materials.
