Clariant to increase prices for products containing titanium dioxide and/or carbon black pigments
Muttenz, September 21, 2017 – Clariant, a world leader in masterbatches and specialty compounds, has today announced a price increase globally for all products containing titanium dioxide and/or carbon black pigments by between 5%-10% (depending on the grade, concentration and quality of the titanium dioxide and/or carbon black).
The increase includes white, black and color masterbatches and relates to the following product brands: REMAFIN®, RENOL®, CESA®, HiFormer® & MEVOPUR®. This will be effective for all deliveries from October 1, 2017 or as soon as contracts allow. This price increase is due to the sustained rise in prices of titanium dioxide, carbon black and other key raw materials driven by several factors including force majeure declarations, supply-demand dynamics and capacity related issues.
