LUXEMBOURG — Orion Engineered Carbons announced that it will implement price increases on all specialty carbon blacks worldwide beginning Sept. 1, 2018. 

The price increases are due to the continuously rising costs for raw materials and freight. Increases will vary depending on the product grade, sales region and end market. These price increases are needed to maintain the service levels and technical support customers expect with Orion’s high-quality specialty carbon blacks.

Orion will review its costs and markets on an ongoing basis and will keep customers informed of any changes that may occur. In case of questions, customers should contact their local Orion sales representative.
