BASF increases prices for PolyTHF worldwide

May '09
With immediate effect or as contracts allow, BASF is increasing the sales prices for PolyTHF (P olytetrahydrofuran) worldwide.

• Europe: + EUR 75/mt
• North America: + USD 6ct/lbs
• Asia: + USD 200/mt

The price adjustment for PolyTHF is related to unsatisfactory margins and is necessary to ensure that BASF can continue to offer high quality products and services to its customers.

PolyTHF is primarily used to make elastic spandex fibers in sportswear and swimsuits. It is also important as an intermediate for thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) used for hoses, films and cable sheathing. Further applications are thermoplastic polyetheresters or polyetheramides and cast elastomers, which are used in the manufacturing of wheels for skateboards and inline skates.

PolyTHF is a registered trade mark of BASF Group in many countries.
