2017 Material Pricing Increases

2017 Material Pricing Increases

We hope all of you are off to a busy and productive 2017. Things are ramping up here at VistaTek, and it also appears so in the resin world. In the past couple months we have been getting a lot of resin price increases and extended lead-time notifications from our suppliers. These increases are significant enough on a lot of common materials that we wanted to share some of them with you.

We are also seeing lead times from suppliers like Sabic moving from 6 to 9 weeks, and also some Covestro materials extending lead times as well.  Please see below for resins that may affect your products and pricing on future orders. Feel free to contact us with any questions. 
Note: If you have the option with your product, it is helpful to add “Or Equivalent” on the print.
