Kuraray Co., Ltd.

The Elastomers Business Unit will raise the transaction prices of following Elastomer products in all regions effective immediately or as existing supply agreements allow: ALL SEPTON, HYBRAR and TU-Polymer: $0.25 per kilogram ($0.11 per pound).

Increasing feedstock prices from late fall 2017 have increased the costs to produce these specialty high performance materials.
