Bayer Raises Prices for Polycarbonates


Bayer MaterialScience AG is increasing sales prices for its Apec and Makrolon brands of polycarbonate by EUR 0.25 per kilogram, and for its Bayblend and Makroblend brands by EUR 0.20 per kilogram as of March 1, 2007.

This applies to all deliveries in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, Africa), the company said.
