Kraton to hike Americas USBC and HSBC price

01
Aug '09
Kraton Polymers LLC (Kraton), a leading global producer of engineered polymers, announces a general price increase in North and South America of US Dollars 220/MT, or 10 cents per lb., across all markets and end uses, for Kraton SBS, SEBS, OE SBS, and OE SEBS polymers and compounds. Subject to the terms of any applicable contracts, the price increase will take effect no later than September 1, 2009, and may occur earlier as business conditions dictate.

“The price adjustments enable Kraton Polymers to continue to develop cost-efficient, sustainable value-added products for our loyal customers,” commented David Bradley, Chief Operations Officer. “We remain focused and dedicated to partnering with our customers to ensure their long-term success.”

Kraton is a leading global producer of engineered polymers and, we believe, the world's largest producer of styrenic block copolymers (SBC's), a family of products whose chemistry was pioneered by us over forty years ago. SBC's are highly-engineered thermoplastic elastomers, which enhance the performance of numerous products by delivering a variety of attributes, including greater flexibility, resilience, strength, durability and processability. Kraton polymers are used in a wide range of applications, including adhesives, coatings, consumer and personal care products, sealants and lubricants, and medical, packaging, automotive, paving, roofing and footwear products.
