Vertellus Announces DEET Price Increase

Vertellus Announces DEET Price Increase

Price increases for raw materials and newly announced tariffs on imports drive increase

 

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – October 3, 2018--Vertellus LLC, a leading specialty chemicals company, today announced a price increase for DEET (n,n-diethyl-tolouamide).  Effective for new orders shipping on or after October 15, 2018, Vertellus is increasing DEET pricing by 22%. The company cites significant and steady increases in the price of raw materials such as m-toluic acid and diethyl amine since the end of 2017 for the price increase.  The increase also reflects a pass-through of substantial and widely-publicized tariffs on imports from China.  Assuming the U.S. Government increases tariffs further in early 2019, Vertellus pricing will be revised to address further increased tariff cost.
