Akzo Nobel Functional Chemicals GmbH & co KG announces a global price increase for all Thioplast products by round 15% effective March 1, 2011 or as contracts allow.

This increase has been prompted by a general increase of costs along with a tight supply and demand balance for polysulfide resins. Overall demand for these products continues to grow with the recovery of the construction and aerospace industry.

Polysulfides are semi-finished liquid elastomers, used in sealants for insulating glass (IG), aircraft fuel tanks and high-end applications in the construction industry.
