By Liz White, UT contributing editorMidland, Michigan-Dow Corning is implementing price rises of 15 to 40 percent for its medical grade polyurethane potting compounds.The firm said the rises are needed to counter rises in raw material and energy costs for production of the compounds. “Price increases are essential to ensure continued ongoing supply and technical support and service to our customers,” according to John Lyon, general manager of Dow Corning’s Life Sciences Business, in a company statement. “Continuous productivity improvements have not been able to fully offset increases in raw material and energy in the production of polyurethane potting compounds.”
