Clariant announces further price increases

Jul '07
Clariant, a global market leader in specialty chemicals, announces further increases of various product segments of the Textile, Leather & Paper Chemicals, Pigments & Additives as well as Functional Chemicals Division with immediate effect.

A continued high level of crude oil prices and energy costs as well as reduced supply for key raw materials due to the closing of several production plants in China to decrease environmental impact cause an ongoing increase in raw material prices.

Consequently price increases will be effected in the following segments: Dyes, Optical Brighteners, Polymer Dispersions, Leather Chemicals and Ethoxylates of the Textile, Leather & Paper Chemicals Division as well as Pigments, Preparations, Polymer Additives, Flame Retardants and Intermediates of the Pigments & Additives Division.

The price increases vary for example between 10 to 30 percent for specific dyes or 10 to 15 percent for Optical Brighteners depending on the product respectively 5 percent for Chinacridones or 15 percent for lacquered pigments.

Clariant's Functional Chemicals Division just recently announced price adjustments to address both recent and announced raw material cost increases especially for products containing ethylene, ethylene oxide as well as fatty alcohol and fatty acid.

Clariant remains committed to a continuous supply of its products and a high level of service and innovation to meet its customers' requirements. Customerswill be contacted individually regarding the specifics of the price increases as they apply to their situation.
