Kuraray Co., Ltd.

Kuraray announced its decision to revise the price of GENESTAR™ heat-resistant polyamide resin for domestic and overseas shipments on or after May 10, 2021.

1.Scope of revision GENESTAR™
2.Price increase Japan: \60/kg
Overseas: US$ 0.60/kg
3.Effective date Shipments on or after May 10, 2021
