Effective April 1, 2018 or as contracts allow, Ashland will increase the price of AME™, Derakane™ and Hetron™ resins, as well as various other epoxy vinyl ester and specialty resins in North America by $0.08 – $0.12/lb depending on grade.
This increase is primarily driven by continued escalation of costs in key raw materials.
Ashland continues to make these decisions with the intent to ensure we are servicing
our customers with the utmost quality and performance and the ability to continue
reinvesting in our product line.
