Kaneka Corporation (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Minoru Tanaka) will revise the sales price of vinyl chloride resin. For shipments from November 20, the current price will be raised by at least 40 JPY per kilogram. This will be applied to not only general-purpose vinyl chloride resin but also all types of specialized vinyl chloride resin, including vinyl chloride paste resin. 
We revised our prices in March and June of this year, but prices have continued to rise for raw materials and fuels, such as naphtha, a basic material used in petrochemical products. There have also been steep increases in costs across the board, including the costs of raw materials, utility, distribution, and facility upkeep and repair.
We have determined that this price revision is necessary to fulfill our responsibility of providing a stable of products to our customers in Japan.
