Mannheim, August 8, 2012 – Rhein Chemie Rheinau GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of specialty chemicals company LANXESS, is increasing the price for its ADDITIN lubricant oil additives by an average of 8.0 percent effective August 15, 2012.
This price increase is made necessary by the stark increase in raw material costs along with strongly rising energy and logistics charges.
