Flint Group Increases Price of all Sheetfed Spot Colors Containing V23 Pigment

Published on 2011-02-11. Author : SpecialChem

Flint Group Print Media Europe is to increase the price of all sheetfed spot colours containing V23 pigment by €2.10/kg with immediate effect.

Global shortages of key raw materials, including Carbozole have caused the cost of violet pigment V23 to soar in recent months. The short supply is expected to continue in 2011, and as a result, Flint Group is forced to increase the price of all sheetfed spot colours containing the pigment by €2.10/kg with immediate effect.

"Carbozole along with many other raw materials has increased dramatically recently, and the purchase price of Violet 23 has gone up by more than 100% as a result" explains Nick Brannan, VP of Product Management, Print Media Europe. "This increase to our spot colours is therefore regrettable but necessary, however we will continue to monitor the situation and keep our customers fully updated of any further developments" he concluded.
