AOC Increases Gel Coat and Pigment Price for US and Canada

28 June 2016

AOC has increased the price of its gel coats and pigments of up to US$0.06/lb. and up to CND$0.175/Kg, depending on application and colour.  

AOC says that all shipments after 9 July 2016 will be affected by this increase.

AOC explains that this action is due to recent increases in critical raw materials including titanium dioxide and isophthalic acid, and cumulative increases in other materials. Its global purchasing resources will continue to work diligently with its vendors to ensure adequate supply of competitively sourced raw materials to take care of its customers’ needs.
