Effective June 1, 2015, Evonik Industries AG will increase the prices of its PMMA sheets and blocks, which it markets under the PLEXIGLAS® and DEGLAS® trademarks, and the ACRIFX® products by 6.5 percent.
The reason for this step is the ongoing considerable rise in the cost of upstream products, especially raw materials.
