LONDON (ICIS)--Styron will raise its prices for all grades of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and styrene acrylonitrile (SAN) by €100/tonne ($133/tonne) with effect from 1 January 2013, or as contract terms allow, the Switzerland-based producer said on Thursday.
The producer explained that the increase is a response to the “rising costs associated with the manufacturing of ABS and SAN in Europe”.
Styron operates a 200,000 tonne/year ABS plant and a 35,000 tonne/year SAN plant in Terneuzen, the Netherlands.
Natural injection moulding grade ABS is priced by ICIS at €2,255-2,310/tonne FD (free delivered) NWE (northwest Europe), while compounding grade is at €2,165-2,205/tonne FD NWE.
SAN commercial grades are assessed at €2,200-2,320/tonne FD NWE, while compounding grade is at €1,960-1,970/tonne FD NWE.
