Bayer MaterialScience raises prices for polyurethane systems in the automotive sector


Effective January 1, 2008, Bayer MaterialScience is raising its sales prices for polyurethane systems for use in the automotive sector in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region by EUR 0.15 per kilogram. Irrespective of this, prices for all Bayfill® systems for use in instrument panels are to be raised by EUR 0.40 per kilogram, because these systems are highly development-intensive and require special technical support. Due to a steep rise in the price of a key raw material, prices for all Bayflex® 180/190 systems for automotive bodywork components are to be increased by EUR 0.25 per kilogram. Contractual obligations in existence at the time when the price increases come into effect are not affected.
