Orangeburg, South Carolina - Gulbrandsen's Polyurethane Additives Business will increase the price of its stannous octoate polyurethane catalysts effective 15 Nov, or as contracts permit.
The price for its T-Cat 110 stannous octoate will increase by 15 percent, according to a 12 Oct statement from the firm. The prices for stannous octoate dilutions along with T-Cat 120 di-butyl tin di-laurate will increase in proportion to their respective tin metal concentrations, the firm added.
Gulbrandsen said that this price increase is the result of the continuing rapid rise in the cost of tin metal used to make the materials.
T-Cat catalysts are used in a wide range of flexible polyurethane foams for both residential and transportation applications.
