Muttenz, October 5, 2021 – Clariant, a focused and innovative specialty chemical company, today announced global price increases across its Quinacridone product portfolio.

The increases will become effective October 6, 2021. The price increases are necessary to recover significant on-going cost increases for one of the key raw materials to manufacture Quinacridones (PR122 and PV19).

The unprecedented price surge of yellow phosphorous and consequently polyphosphoric acid in recent weeks caused by energy quotas in China, forces us to announce price increases for our Quinacridone pigments with immediate effect. 

Prices for the pigment portfolio will increase by:
