DuPont Titanium Technologies Announces a Price Increase for Titanium Dioxide Grades in Asia Pacific

Published on 2006-03-10. Author : SpecialChem

WILMINGTON, Del., -- DuPont Titanium Technologies announced a price increase in Asia Pacific for all DuPont titanium dioxide (TiO2) grades.

Effective April 1, 2006, DuPont is increasing the price of all TiO2 grades by US$100 per tonne in Asia Pacific. This increase is necessary in light of the dramatic rise in energy-related costs, affecting the reinvestment economics required to balance DuPont's global supply of TiO2.

Other regional increases will be announced directly within the local regions.
