Armacell Raw Material Surcharge RMS
Armacell Raw Material Surcharge.
- The RMS will apply to all shipments of our elastomeric foam materials from 1st May 2017 and in the UK & Ireland this includes the following product ranges:
AF/Armaflex Class O, Armaflex Tuffcoat, HT/Armaflex, NH/Armaflex, Armaflex Duct, Arma-Chek Silver, Armaflex LTD, Armaflex Ultima, Armaflex Rail, Armaflex Protect and ArmaSound products.
- The RMS is based on four transparent and independent indices which have a major impact on our manufacturing costs. These can be reviewed and monitored freely on the internet:
Aluminium (LME): http://lme.com/en-gb/metals/non-ferrous/aluminium/
Bromine (100ppi): http://www.sunsirs.com/uk/prodetail-643.html
PVC (KI Web): https://www.kiweb.de/
Butadiene (IHS): https://connect.ihs.com/home
- This variable surcharge will be reviewed every 6 months. Initially it will be applied from 1st May until the end of October. The next surcharge (to be implemented 1st November) will be based on the August 2017 Armacell Price Index when compared with our December 2016 reference.
Ourselves and Armacell are committed to being transparent in applying this surcharge across all our markets.
