Dublin, Ohio (PRWEB) September 08, 2017
Ashland announced today it will increase the price of its complete portfolio of unsaturated polyester resins, epoxy vinyl ester resins and gelcoats in North America by $0.09/lb. effective September 18, 2017, or as contracts allow.
This increase is primarily driven by continued escalation of costs in key raw materials and freight, exacerbated by the recent disruption to the North American chemical industry by Hurricane Harvey.
