MUTTENZ, Switzerland – Clariant recently announced global price increases across its Quinacridone product portfolio. The increases became effective Oct. 6, 2021. The price increases are necessary to recover significant on-going cost increases for one of the key raw materials to manufacture Quinacridones (PR122 and PV19).
Clariant reports that the unprecedented price surge of yellow phosphorous and consequently polyphosphoric acid in recent weeks caused by energy quotas in China, forces the company to announce price increases for its Quinacridone pigments with immediate effect.
For powder pigments of all Quinacridones with country of origin China, prices for the pigment portfolio will increase by $11,00/Kg, PR122 will increase $9,00/Kg, and PV19 will increase $13,25/Kg. For preparations, PR122 based on specific pigment content will increase by up to $4,06/Kg, and PV19 based on specific pigment content will increase by up to $4,24/Kg
Customers will be informed individually as to how the increases apply to their products.
