BASF will increase the prices for all Polyamide 6 base polymer grades and the Polyamide Intermediates Caprolactam and Adipic Acid in Europe by €110 per metric ton for each product, with immediate effect or as soon as existing contracts allow. The price increase is necessary due to the steep raw material price increases in the last months.
