Flint Group Raises Prices on Heatset Web Inks
PLYMOUTH, MI—Flint Group North America has announced a 10 percent price increase on heatset web offset printing inks used in commercial and publication markets. New prices will take effect on all heatset process inks, blends and OPVs ordered in the United States and Canada on or after June 1, subject to existing contracts.
“Since January, costs have continued to increase substantially for all of the major raw materials used in heatset inks,” said Michael Podd, business director, heatset inks for Flint Group. “Driving these costs are supply constraints for pigments, resins and additives. Based on our ongoing tracking of global raw material trends, we do not expect to see improvements in the near term.”
