Perstorp, Sweden -- Perstorp is increasing prices for its Capa caprolactones from 1 May 2010, a 26 March company statement said.
The price increases are as follows:
Europe -- Euro 150/tonne
UK -- £150/tonne
North America -- $0.09/lb
Asia & Rest of the World -- $210/tonne
"The price increase is made to offset eroding margins caused by increased raw material costs," the statement said.
