Sun Chemical to Raise Silicone Product Prices

PARSIPPANY, NJ | Sun Chemical reports it will 35% on its entire silicone-based product line in North America, effective January 15, 2018. The company says this decision is due to a massive shortage in silicones and silicone-based materials from manufacturers.

“Because of the silicone shortage we’re seeing in the industry, our suppliers have passed on price increases beyond anything we have seen in recent years,” says Dennis Sweet, VP-Commercial, Rycoline and Distributors, North American Inks, Sun Chemical. “While Sun Chemical has utilized all its resources to offset these shortages and increases, it has now become necessary to pass some of these increases on.”
