Sun Chemical to Institute Price Increase in July
PARSIPPANY, NJ—Sun Chemical will implement a 6 percent price increase for heatset and directory inks in North America effective July 1. Prices will also increase for all of Sun Chemical Rycoline blanket and roller washes, specialty solvents, isopropyl alcohol, alcohol replacement and aqueous coatings.
The price of solvent-based washes will increase by $0.50 per gallon and aqueous coatings by $0.05 per pound. The increasing costs of distillates, solvents, resins and pigment raw materials are key factors contributing to the price increase, according to Sun Chemical.
