White finish pricing increase

Postby jmurray2112 » Sun May 05, 2019 6:37 pm

The cost of white pigment has almost doubled lately, due to a world-wide shortage. Like almost everything else, the bulk of the raw material for it, Titanium Dioxide, comes from China. About 16% of their production capacity has been shut down or restricted due to "environmental issues", which I find hysterical because, c'mon, it's China. Whatever the reason, we're all paying for it. White is now the same pricing as the organics in our color line. If it's any consolation, the increase to you isn't as high as it is to us, percentage-wise. Just letting y'all know.
