INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 18)—Great Lakes Chemical Corp. is hiking the price of its phosphorus-based flame retardants by 10 percent. The company said the increase will take effect worldwide during the first quarter as contracts allow, and is the result of sharply rising manufacturing and regulatory costs. Great Lakes retardants, sold under the tradenames Reofos and Kronitex, are used in elastomer and other polymer systems.
