Prices and supply

Rising costs in the composite industry

Dear Valued Customers,

Currently there is several factors in the composite industry worldwide that are pushing prices of all resins and glass products. This is an international trend at the moment and at this stage it is not known how long these price highs will last. Unfortunately, Trojan cannot absorb these price rises, and we will need to increase prices of all resin and glass products effective from March 2021.

Supply lines for Polyester, Vinylester and Epoxy raw materials is now very tight in supply. Many large raw material manufacturers are calling force majeure and not suppling throughout the world. Several Styrene Monomer plants have closed causing a worldwide shortage of Styrene in the market, both of these factors are directly responsible for sharp increases in pricing.

Fibreglass roving supply worldwide is at an all time low, Jushi one of the worlds biggest roving suppliers has made several price rises over the last few weeks, and with a strong push from them to look after their domestic market this is reducing export numbers worldwide, causing supply problems and slow export times.

We will continue to monitor market pricing and supply trends and will do our up-most best to continue supply to all of our customers. At this stage we have a good supply line coming into the country and production levels are still the same.

New pricing will be effective immediately on our online store platform. Trade account customers will be issued with revised pricing effective for March this week.

We appreciate your understanding during these trying times and valued your continued business. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our office.

Kind Regards, The Trojan Team

COVID-19 Trojan Fibreglass Update

COVID-19 Trojan Fibreglass Update



Dear Valued Customers,

We hope that you are looking after yourself, family, co-workers and friends in these uncertain times. Your health is the up most importance. We wanted to advise on how Trojan Fibreglass is fairing in this ever-changing pandemic.

We are ensuring our staff remain safe, and isolated if they are experiencing any effects of illness regardless of COVID-19. All staff are regularly washing hands and maintaining personal hygiene. We have implemented the following to our retail store front in an attempt to keep our staff, customers and families safe.

  • Our trade store, located in our manufacturing facility will be closed as of 8.30am 24/03/20. There will be no customers allowed to enter the store or warehouse to purchase materials. This will include order pickups.

We will still be able to process orders over the phone and via our online store. We believe this is the best and safest option to keep our staff and customers safe and reduce any spread of this horrible virus.

Currently we have had no restrictions on transportation between state borders, so we can continue to deliver materials via our online store and phone orders. We do ask that you please be patient as we are experiencing some delays with shipping as the freight network is heavily congested at this time and please be assured, we a processing and dispatching orders as fast as possible. All shipping and tracking information will be updated on your order status daily.

Current supply of raw materials is still strong and we still have good shipping schedules coming in from our overseas suppliers. We have pushed hard in the early days of this pandemic to ensure that we are in a good supply position to be able to continue supporting our customers’ demands in these tough times.

We do regret that due to the current economic crisis our raw material pricing has significantly increased, due to the falling US dollar, increased shipping cost and general demand. Over the next few weeks there will be price rises across our range of products. We will endeavor to keep rises to as low as possible and accommodate as best we can. As the crisis eases, we should see pricing move back inline.

We appreciate all your support and hope that you stay safe and healthy. If you any questions please feel free to give us a call or send us an email and our friendly staff will be happy to answer any questions.



Kind Regards

Epoxy global price rise

Within the last 6 months the global epoxy raw material costings have been slowing increasing, we are now seeing some increases coming through from anywhere up to 8%. Some of the factors that are effecting the markets are slow growth in the mature markets of the US and Europe increased demand from environmental authorities in the Asian market.

Increased demand on bis phenol-A and Epichlorohydrin used in the production of epoxy resins continues to have the greatest effect on pricing. Increases to raw material pricing on curing agents is also on the increase with increases currently moving up to 5%.
