Perstorp will increase the price for its Capa™ Caprolactone monomer and polymers

Effective from March 1, 2012 or as existing contracts permit, Perstorp will increase the price for its Capa™ Caprolactone monomer and polymers. Prices will be increased by up to €200/ton in Europe, £170/ton in UK , US$0.12/lb in North America, ¥20/kg in Japan and US$260/ton Asia & rest of the world.

The price increase is necessitated by increasing raw material prices that cannot be absorbed.
