IMERYS North American Performance Minerals to Raise Prices on Kaolin Products

Published on 2005-08-17. Author : SpecialChem

ATLANTA -- Imerys North American Performance Minerals announced a price increase across its entire kaolin product portfolio. The increase is effective October 1, 2005, or as current price agreements expire. Kaolin prices will increase to a maximum of 15% per pound dependant upon the product grade, volume, and form.

The Performance Minerals Division's portfolio of kaolin products are used in a wide variety of demanding, industrial applications such as paints, polymers, rubber, ceramics, adhesives, caulks, sealants and pharmaceuticals.
