Price Increase for PLEXIGLAS® and PLEXIMID® Molding Compounds

Darmstadt, Germany, May 29, 2012

Effective immediately, Evonik Industries is increasing the prices for all molding compounds sold under the trademarks PLEXIGLAS® and PLEXIMID®. As far as permissible under existing agreements the increase will amount to 0.15 € per kilogram.

The reason for this step is the continued escalation of raw material costs.
