Ashland Performance Materials has announced a similar increase effective January 15, 2018 on their complete portfolio of composite resins and gel coats. Other manufacturers have announced similar increases for their resins and gel coats effective in January 2018.
NAC will increase all affected products by the announced increase to our customers on all orders shipped on or after January 13, 2018.
Raw material costs continue to rise across the board due to various shortages causing tight supply of many products. In addition, logistical challenges remain for many key manufacturers as the industry continues to recover from the impact of hurricanes which impacted the gulf coast in 2017. Our suppliers are working closely with their raw material suppliers to reduce the impact of these increases and to ensure supply to support our customer’s current and future needs.
If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please contact your NAC sales representative.
