DuPont to increase prices on various brands

DuPont Performance Materials will increase prices for its Zytel, Zytel HTN, Minlon, Hytrel, Crastin and Rynite-branded products globally, effective March 15 or as soon as contracts allow.

Zytel polymers and compounds, Zytel HTN, minlon and Hytrel will be increased by the equivalent of $300 per metric ton. Crastin and Rynite will increase by $250 per metric ton. DuPont added that higher increases may be required for some specialty grades.

The firm said the price increases are needed because of increased raw material costs. They are also in addition to the increases previously announced on Feb. 2.

DuPont Performance Materials is a unit of DuPont Co. that produces thermoplastics, elastomers, renewably sourced polymers and resins that act as adhesives, sealants and modifiers.
