Continental Carbon announces carbon black price increase for US

Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 7:00 am

Continental Carbon Company has announced a price increase on all grades of carbon black effective July 1st, 2016. The increase will be $0.03/pound for all products produced at Phenix City, Alabama and $0.02/pound for all products produced at the company’s two other plants (Ponca City, Oklahoma and Sunray, Texas). Continental reports that it is experiencing continued increases in the costs to operate our plants and improve the overall quality of our products, and this increase is necessary to continue that commitment. For Phenix City, carbon black oil continues to be delivered at levels above the Platt’s indicator for which we must account. Prices for contract customers will be adjusted as soon as contract terms allow.

Here is the price increase announcement.
