PORT NECHES, Texas (Oct. 7)ùAmeripol Synpol Corp. will increase prices for its clear ESBR products 3 cents per pound and carbon black masterbatches 2 cents per pound, effective Oct. 14. The firm said rising costs for butadiene and styrene, the two main feedstocks in ESBR production, prompted its sixth price increase this year. Ameripol Synpol also will levy a 5-cent-per-pound surcharge on all non-contract formula priced customers immediately and levy the same surcharge on contract customers as contracts permit.
