We apologise for any inconvenience this error may have caused. A corrected version of the story follows in full:


HOUSTON (CNI)--Huntsman Performance Products said Thursday it will seek to increase list and off-list prices in North America for its ethyleneamines, effective 1 June or as contracts allow.


The company said the price hike for E100 and TEPA ethyleneamines will be 8 cents/pound ($176.32/tonne). TETA ethyleneamines will increase by 15 cents/pound. EDA and AEEA ethyleneamines prices will increase by 5 cents/pound, while AEP and DETA ethyleneamines prices will rise by 3 cents/pound.


A company spokesperson said the higher prices represented an average increase of 5% from current list and off-list prices.


Huntsman said the price hikes “reflect continued upward pressure on energy and feedstock costs and a continuing high demand for ethyleneamine products.”


It was not clear if customers would accept the proposed increases. 


Huntsman Performance Products is a division of Huntsman Corporation, The Woodlands, Texas-based global manufacturer and marketer of commodity and differentiated chemicals.
