Effective March 1, Charlotte-based DAK Americas LLC – a producer of polyester staple fibers (PSFs),
polyethylene terephthalate resins and terephthalic acid monomers wholly owned by Mexico-based Alfa
S.A.B. de C.V. – will implement a 6-cent-per-pound price increase on all of its PSF products. The
company cited the rising cost of paraxylene, a raw material feedstock used to manufacture PSFs, in
announcing the increase.
