Article Type: Industry news From: Pigment & Resin Technology, Volume 40, Issue 3
Ongoing supply shortages and continuous cost increases force Siegwerk to raise ink prices again with immediate effect for some products in EMEA. Up to 70 percent increases in violet pigments make this action necessary. All products containing violet pigments are affected by this dramatic situation. Violet with pigment 23 will increase by €2 kg−1, reflex blue by €0.80 kg−1 and blue 072 by €1.05 kg−1, neglecting supply contracts or not. Additionally, all metallic inks will raise by €1.90 kg−1.
This price increase applies to all countries in EMEA.
