Price increase Grilamid

07.11.2017

EMS-GRIVORY will increase prices of its High Performance Polymers Grilamid L PA12 worldwide between 0.70 €/kg and 1.80 €/kg as of Jan. 1st 2018. Prices for other long chain Polyamide Types such as Grilamid 2S PA610 and 2D PA612 will rise from 0.40 to 0.80 €/kg.

The increase is a consequence of the general shortage of raw material for Polyamide 12, steady demand growth for Specialty Polyamides driven by a positive economic trend and the undiminished realization of new applications in various market segments.

EMS constantly strives to further raise its production capacity for Specialty Polyamides. This implies a minimum return, both short and long term, to enable important future investments.

As a leading supplier of Specialty Polymers, EMS-GRIVORY offers a very broad range of long chain Polyamides as alternatives to the tight Polyamide 12. Available compounds based on these polymers cover most of the typical application profiles.
