Department of Energy Average Diesel Price for the Month
The chemical surcharge that 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 fo 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 Oct 2018, the 90 day average price of 2-EHA is $125.3/lbs. The Chemical surcharge for Dec 2018 will be 0.00/msi. If there are 3 consecutive months averaging in the 120-129 range, Mactac will implement the new tier here.
