Ashland has said it will increases its prices on all resins and gelcoats in North America.

The increase will come into effect as of 18 September and will impact the supplier’s complete portfolio of unsaturated polyester resins, epoxy vinyl ester resins and gelcoats in North America by $0.09/lb.

It said: “This increase is primarily driven by continued escalation of costs in key raw materials and freight, exacerbated by the recent disruption to the North American chemical industry by Hurricane Harvey.

“Ashland continues to work diligently to ensure supply, service our customers, and provide the utmost quality and performance.”
