MUTTENZ, Switzerland – Clariant's Business Unit Pigments has announced price increases across its product portfolio.

The adjustments, which take immediate effect, are necessary to recover significant on-going cost inflation in raw materials, labor, energy and transportation.

Price increases of up to eight percent will affect pigments, pigment preparations and dyes, depending on the product range and as contracts allow. Selected individual products will experience higher increases due to the severe impact of their specific raw material cost increase.
