AOC announces resin price increase for United States and Canada

AOC reports that prices for all vinyl ester and unsaturated polyester resins, gel-coats and pigments will increase by US$0.07/lb in the US and CN$0.155/kg in Canada.

All increases are effective for shipments on, and after, 13 February 2012.

According to AOC, this action is due to higher prices for several raw materials. These conditions are expected to continue throughout the first quarter of 2012.

AOC, headquartered in Tennessee, USA, is a global supplier of resins, gel-coats, colorants, additives and synergistic material systems for the composites and cast polymer industries.
