Celanese implemented sales control measures for polyacetal product deliveries

November 08/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Celanese Corporation, a global specialty materials company, has announced it is implementing sales control measures in the European, Americas and Asia regions for its polyoxymethylene (POM) engineered materials product, including all grades and specifications, as per the company's press release.

Factors impacting the company's ability to meet POM product demand include: Rhine river levels are at the lowest on record, restricting the supply of key raw materials into the company's Industriepark Hochst (IPH) facility in Frankfurt, Germany, the largest POM unit in the world; a series of required turnarounds at Celanese-owned and co-supplier POM units.

While any existing placed order is acknowledged, future POM orders could be subject to adjustment or denial.

As MRC informed previously, Celanese Corporation has increase October list and off-list selling prices for Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) sold in Europe, Middle East, Africa and the Americas. The price increases below were effective for orders shipped on or after October 1, 2018, or as contracts otherwise allow, and were incremental to any previously announced increases.

Thus, VAM prices rose, as follows:

     - by EUR50/mt - for Europe, Middle East & Africa;
     - by USD0.03/lb - for the USA and Canada:
     - by USD65/mt - for Mexico & South America.

Celanese Corporation is a global technology leader in the production of differentiated chemistry solutions and specialty materials used in most major industries and consumer applications. Based in Dallas, Celanese employs approximately 7,600 employees worldwide and had 2017 net sales of USD6.1 billion.
