Resolution Performance Products LLC Announces Versatics Price Increases Globally

Houston (ots/PRNewswire) - Resolution Performance Products LLC (RPP) announced today that it will increase the prices of all products in its Versatic Acids and Derivatives business line, including: VeoVa(TM) Vinylester, Cardura E10P(TM) Glycidylester and Versatic(TM) Acids, in all regions by 200 Euro/metric ton or 220 USD/metric ton (equaling 10ccp), respectively, effective September 1, 2004. "This price increase is needed to compensate for further increasing feedstock costs which continue to affect the Versatics Business' profitability," says Ed Hoozemans, Vice-President for RPP's Versatics Business. "Demand continues at the strong levels we experienced in the first half and allows our plants to run at full capacity," added Ed Hoozemans. "The plans to debottleneck our Acids and Vinylester capacity are developing at a steady pace. Maintaining margins will ensure adequate capacity to meet the continually growing needs of the marketplace."
