Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 2:32 pm

On June 28, Cabot Corporation announced a price increase of $0.07 per pound for all carbon black shipments made in North America on or after August 1, 2019, or as customer contracts allow. In the press release, Cabot said:

This price increase is necessary to assure customers of continued supply reliability at a time of increasing demand from tire production in the region. Additionally, Cabot continues to make substantial investments and incur significant new costs to reduce air emissions and enhance the sustainability of its operations in the region. Cabot believes these actions will further augment its long-term value proposition to customers based on quality, reliability, and sustainability.

In the press release, Cabot also announced an update to the standard commercial policies for its Reinforcement Materials segment in North America, including changes to standard packaging, transportation, and warehousing premiums. These policies can be found in this PDF from the company.
