Fremont, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2004
Nitto Denko has announced a price increase of approximately 100 yen per kg for its epoxy molding compound, a high-grade encapsulating resin used in the assembly of semiconductors. The across the board price increase is attributed to the recent cost increase of raw materials such as epoxy and filler, as well as to a tight supply of some of the ingredients required for manufacturing. The price increase will take effect in December 1st shipments.
