INEOS Styrolution announced higher prices of PS and ABS in April.
On acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), INEOS Styrolution is seeking an increase of €250/mt from March to April.
For polystyrene (PS), the increases are €310/mt for general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) and high heat polystyrene (HIPS).
And the usual €100/mt surcharge will apply on HIPS.
Meanwhile, the upward pressure on styrenics continues to get worse, since most players expected much smaller increases in April after the big jump in March.
