The chemical surcharge is based on a 90 day rolling average of the monthly low price of an acrylic monomer, 2-EHA. This surcharge is used as a surrogate measure to allow customers to anticipate fluctuations in key adhesive chemical raw material costs. The surcharge doesn't recapture all of the inflation for these chemicals but is an indicator of trends impacting costs that Mactac must deal with.
Based on the published monthly prices of 2-EHA in Dec 2020, the 90-day average price of 2-EHA is $82.3/lbs. The Chemical surcharge for February 2021 will be 0.00/msi. If there are 3 consecutive months averaging in the 120-129 range, Mactac will implement the chemical surcharge new tier here.
