LEVERKUSEN, Germany, Dec. 15, 2010 -- Specialty chemicals company LANXESS is to increase its prices worldwide for ion exchange resins with immediate effect as a result of the continued high costs of raw materials and higher energy and transportation expenses. According to Peter Steglich, head of Marketing in LANXESS' Ion Exchange Resins business unit, prices for Lewatit and Ionac products will rise by up to 12 percent in Europe, the United States and Japan and by up to 15 percent in all other regions -- depending on the energy and raw material requirement in the manufacture of the grade concerned and on logistic costs.
