The Elastomers Business Unit of Kuraray America Inc. will raise the transaction prices of Elastomer products by the following amounts effective April 1, 2014, or as existing supply agreements allow.

• SEPTON®, Hybrar, and TU-Polymer grades will be increased by $0.15 per pound
• All list prices will be adjusted according to grade

Increasing feedstock prices have resulted in the steady escalation of costs to produce these specialty high performance materials. It is necessary to recover a portion of those increases to ensure ongoing supply and new product innovation.

This price increase will be in effect for all shipments on or after April 1, 2014 or in accordance with existing supply agreements. Other terms and conditions are unchanged.
