Clariant to increase prices for Masterbatch and Compound products containing titanium dioxide, polymers, carbon black, pigments, dyes and additives

  • Global price increase effective April 1st 2018 or as soon as contracts allow

Muttenz, March 9, 2018 – Clariant, a world leader in masterbatches and specialty compounds, has today announced a price increase globally for its entire range of masterbatch and compound products containing titanium dioxide, polymers, carbon black, pigments, dyes and several additives by 4- 7% (depending on the grade, concentration and quality of the titanium dioxide, polymer, carbon black, pigments, dyes and additives).

The increase includes white, black, color, additive masterbatches and compounds and relates to the following product brands: REMAFIN®, RENOL®, CESA®, HiFormer® & MEVOPUR®. This will be effective for all deliveries from April 1, 2018 or as soon as contracts allow. This price increase is due to the continued rise in prices of titanium dioxide, polymers, 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.
