Waukesha, Wisconsin - US spray foam systems supplier Gaco Western is to increase the price of its polyurethane spray foam products, effective 1 March 2013.
Both its open-and closed cell products will increase by $.08 per lb. There will be no change to its RoofFoam 273 product.
"Raw material costs were on the rise in 2012 and continue as we enter 2013," Chuck Skalski, vice president of sales, GacoFlex, said in a statement. "Most notably are increases in ISO, fire retardants, blowing agents, polyols and freight. Even with improved plant efficiencies, we are unable to keep up with the raw material and freight increases."
The company said that although orders placed before 22 Feb for immediate shipment will be honoured at the old price.
