Prices for PV 23 (dioxazine violet) and PO 34 will be increased by 15 percent. Prices for PY 83 will increase by 14 percent, prices for PY 12, PY 13, PY 14, PY 174 and PY 176 will increase by five percent.
The price increases are driven by higher raw material prices (e.g. Carbazole, Hydroquinone, DCB and certain coupling agents) triggered by higher environmental, health and safety costs and lack of availability, e.g. due to the stronger enforcement of environmental and safety regulations in China.
