October 18, 2018
Kaneka Corporation (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Mamoru Kadokura) revises the sales price of modified silicone polymer (Product name: “Kaneka MS Polymer™”, “Kaneka Silyl™”). From the delivery on 1st of November onward, we raise the price by 20 yen and over per kilogram from the current price.
The price of main raw material, PPG (polypropylene glycol) and PO (propylene oxide) has increased owing to the increase in the domestic price of naphtha. In addition, business environment is becoming more severe as physical distribution costs and utility costs are also increasing.
Under these circumstances, Kaneka determined to implement the price increase in order to maintain stable supply.
