Tight feedstock supply behind Dupont nylon resin price rise
HOUSTON, February 21, 2019 (PCW) – Tight nylon feedstock supply was the major reason Dupont increased prices for two nylon 66 resins on Feb 1, company spokeswoman Natalie K. Moore said on Wednesday.
This includes primary feedstock hexamethylene diamine (HMW). The increases were applied to Dupont Transportation & Advanced Polymers’ Zytel resins, by $400/mt, and Crastin resins, by $200/mt. The new prices applied to all Dupont’s customers globally.
Zytel is used in the automotive, consumer electronics and other sectors; Crastin is used in lighting fixtures in motor vehicles, electrical components, distribution boxes and fiber optic cable jackets. – Xavier A Cronin
