The exchange rate of EUR to USD which has gone up by 11% since May (and 18% since the beginning of the year) has at least for now severely diminished or eliminated any real cost relief on oil derivatives pricing. Thus, the currency adjusted Platt’s quotation is still solidly above USD 1,000/t.
We will continue to monitor and report on the kerosene pricing and USD/EUR exchange rate trends here.
While an early downward trend of kerosene pricing seems to have established itself in the second half of September, the exchange rate of EUR to USD which has gone up by 11% since May (and 18% since the beginning of the year) has at least for now severely diminished or eliminated any real cost relief on oil derivatives pricing. Thus, the currency adjusted Platt’s quotation is still solidly above USD 1,000/t.
We will continue to monitor and report on the kerosene pricing and USD/EUR exchange rate trends here, with next update due on November 5.

We are thrilled to inform you that we have completed the last steps toward a new, updated visual identity of our flagship brand – FLAMMAT. It includes refreshed and more dynamic layout of our commercial packages, a new web site, and an updated product catalog. The graphic design and marketing research behind the effort were comprehensive and took inputs from all of our key markets for six months.
The phased introduction of the new look started in August 2019 and is now fully completed. Market labeling and instructions, distributor data and bar codes remain unchanged.
The result is a re-energized look, designed to stand out and highlight our brand’s core promises of efficiency and strength, in a modern and dynamic appearance.
