Price Increase for VISIOMER® Methacrylate Monomers

Evonik Industries, one of the world’s leading suppliers of methacrylate chemicals, will raise the prices of its VISIOMER® Methacrylate Monomers. The new pricing structure applies to customers worldwide with exception of NAFTA. NAFTA pricing will be communicated separately by Evonik Cyro LLC, a 100 percent subsidiary of Evonik.

Effective June 1, 2010, as far as permissible under existing agreements, the prices for VISIOMER® Methacrylate Monomers will be increased by 5 % to 8 %. Your respective Sales Manager will contact you in the very near future to answer any questions you may have regarding this matter.

The price increase is caused by massive changes of raw material costs and the current market conditions.
