MUTTENZ, SWITZERLAND: Clariant has increased prices for all masterbatch and compound products containing titanium dioxide (TiO2), carbon black, pigments, dyes and several additives globally.

The increase will be 8 percent (depending on the grade, concentration and quality of the titanium dioxide, carbon black, pigments, dyes and additives).

The increase includes white, black, colour, additive masterbatches and compounds and relates to the following product brands: REMAFIN, RENOL, CESA, HiFormer & MEVOPUR. This will be effective for all deliveries from February 1, 2018, or as soon as contracts allow.

This price increase is due to the additional rise in prices of titanium dioxide, carbon black, pigments, dyes and additives driven by several factors including supply-demand dynamics, ongoing capacity reductions in the pigment and dye industry and related increases in feedstock costs of several materials.
