GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — AOC LLC will increase prices on all polyester resin, gel coat, pigments and additive products $0.06 per pound in the United States and $0.13 per kilo in Canada. Both price increases are effective for shipments on and after March 7.
Feedstocks such as butane, propylene, and BTX (benzene/toluene/xylene) used to make key raw materials for unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resins continue to increase, according to the company, compounding raw material increases due to supply shortages and tightness.
"AOC continues to be well-positioned to meet our customer’s supply needs during these difficult times," the company said in a release.
