Imerys Ceramics Announces Price Increase for its Mineral Solutions and Kiln Furniture Portfolio
Imerys Ceramics announces price increases for prepared bodies, glazes, raw materials (kaolins, ball clays, feldspars, quartz, halloysite and other products from local blending platforms), and kiln furniture for ceramic applications (i.e. sanitaryware, tableware, tiles) and adjacent markets (i.e. fiberglass, hand formers, electrical porcelain).
Effective 1 January 2019, prices will increase between 6,5–10 % per t. Actual increases will depend on product grade and packaging type and are subject to provisions in individual contracts. Customers will be notified details of specific increase in due course. Customers purchasing products on a delivered basis will see additional adjustments due to step changes in global and regional freight markets. Imerys Ceramics continues to work with its partners to offer competitive rates and monitor and control the impact of rising energy prices. The regulatory environment for mining has a direct impact on Imerys´s costs. Prices out of its Thai kaolin operations (Ranong) will increase more significantly than the above mentioned percentages. Increase will be discussed on a case by case basis. Any questions from customers should be directed to their regular sales contact.
