BASF increases price for PolyTHF® worldwide
With immediate effect or as contracts allow, BASF is increasing the sales price for PolyTHF® (Polytetrahydrofuran) worldwide by US$150 per metric ton or equivalents in local currencies.
The price adjustment for PolyTHF® is triggered by strong demand from all market segments and supported by continuously high raw materials and energy costs.
PolyTHF® is primarily used to make elastic spandex fibers in sportswear and swimsuits. It is also important as an intermediate for thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) used for hoses, films and cable sheathing. Further applications are thermoplastic polyetheresters or polyetheramides and cast elastomers, which are used in the manufacturing of wheels for skateboards and inline skates.
