Orion increases prices for rubber carbon blacks in EMEA
Orion Engineered Carbons GmbH announced that it will increase the prices for all rubber carbon black grades in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Effective from 1 August 2018 or as contract terms allow, the prices will be adjusted by 70 to 90 EUR per tonne.
The measure is the result of rising operating expenses due to high utilization rates and continued investments into its manufacturing network, said the company. Orion is a worldwide supplier of carbon black, offering products for coatings, printing inks, polymers, rubber and other applications.
