Ashland increases prices on composites resins and gelcoats in North America

DUBLIN, Ohio (PRWEB) August 30, 2018

Ashland is increasing prices on its portfolio of resins and gelcoats up to $0.05/lb. The increases apply to North America and are effective September 12, 2018 or as agreements allow.

The price increases are due to continued cost escalation in key raw materials, driven by demand and tightness in feedstocks, cost increases for packaging and freight, and supply chain disruption due to tariffs. Ashland remains committed to providing customers with quality products and to delivering services that are reliable and efficient.
