In North America: Effective August 1, 2009, or as permitted by contract, prices for all Tiona and Cristal titanium dioxide (TiO2) products will increase by US three (3) cents per pound (USD).This increase is in addition to the previous announcement of a two (2) cent per pound increase for the same date

In Brazil: Effective August 1, 2009, or as permitted by contract, prices for all Tiona® and Cristal titanium dioxide (TiO2) products will increase up to US$150 per metric tonne. This is in addition to the previous announcement of US$100 per metric tonne announced for July 1.
