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 December 1, 2021.

Increasing raw material prices and logistics costs have reached to the level beyond unilaterally absorbable by self-saving efforts. This time, it is necessary to recover a portion of these increases to ensure ongoing supply and new product development.

Under these circumstances, we have decided to implement the following price revisions for GENESTAR™.
