LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Feb. 10)—Zeon Chemicals L.P. will impose a raw material surcharge of 4 cents per pound on all NBR products effective March 15. The company said restricted supplies of globally traded butadiene and hikes in oil prices have become too much for the business to absorb. "We will certainly review the situation at the end of three months and are hopeful that circumstances will change and eliminate the need for a surcharge," John Stothard, vice president and general manager of Zeon's Elastomers Division, said in a prepared statement.
