AOC Increase Price of Gel Coats and Pigments

  • Tuesday, 16th August 2011
  • Reading time: less than a minute

AOC has increased the price of select white, off-white, beige, tan, gray, and other pastel pigmented gel coats by US$0.10/lb, and has increased similar colour ranges of liquid pigment dispersions by up to US$0.25/lb.

They say the amount of the increase is dependant on the formulation components and that the new pricing is effective for all shipments after August 31st, 2011.

AOC explain that the price announcement is in direct response to rising costs for titanium dioxide and other key raw material related components. They expect titanium dioxide prices to continue expanding to historically high levels due to strong global demand, and that global market supply conditions will limit titanium dioxide availability for the extended future.
