CHARLOTTE — September 13, 2011 — Global paraxylene supply to the polyester industry is running at
very high operating rates.
As a result, a significant increase in the global cost of paraxylene is working through the
polyester value chain.
Due to the increased cost of polyester raw materials, DAK Americas will increase prices for
all Polyester Staple Fiber (PSF) products.
Effective October 1, 2011; DAK Americas will increase PSF prices by $0.04 per pound.
DAK is committed to the polyester staple fibers business and will continue to supply quality
products, services and innovation to its customers.
