Gulbrandsen to Increase Tin Catalyst Prices for Polyurethanes


Gulbrandsen Chemicals Inc. announced that it will increase the price of T-Cat tin catalysts effective November 15, 2007 or as contracts permit. The price for T-Cat stannous octoate products will raise by 15% at that time and the price of dibutyl tin dilaurate will rise by 10%.

Gulbrandsen said that this price increase is primarily the result of the rising cost of raw materials used to produce these products. With London Metal Exchange (LME) price for tin metal again near record levels along with increases other raw materials this increase becomes necessary.

T-Cat catalysts are used in a wide range of flexible polyurethane foams for both residential and automotive seating and for bedding.
