Clariant announces additive price increases
Muttenz, July 1, 2021 – Effective immediately, Clariant will increase the prices of its additives by up to 25%.
The adjustments will be applied globally to all wax additives, performance polymers, halogen-free flame retardants, stabilizers and other performance additives.
The move is necessary due to the cumulative impact of continued raw material cost increases, challenges in the availability of raw materials, and rapid rises in energy and freight costs.
Clariant's additives provide performance and processing advantages to a wide variety of markets, including plastics, coatings & inks, and consumer.
