LANXESS increases prices for adipic acid
Specialty chemicals company LANXESS is raising its prices for adipic acid globally with immediate effect. The increase amounts for EUR 80 per metric ton. The reason for the adjustment is the significant rise in raw material costs over the past months.
Adipic acid is an important precursor for the production of polyamide 66 based fibers and technical polymers and for the synthesis of polyester polyols for polyurethane systems and thermoplastic polyurethanes.
