RESTRICTED SUPPLY OF ORGANIC PIGMENTS BASED ON 2B ACID

The known families of organic pigments can typically be: pure pigments, lake type pigments or toner-type pigments. Within these, the lake type pigments produced from 2B acid present a global restriction in the supply, since this chemical precursor has a restricted availability by large producers in China which have at the same time government restrictions due to environmental regulations.

These pigments are experiencing considerable increases in price (two percentage digits) and the worst is that their availability is very limited; we invite our customers to consider these forecasts and make contingency plans for this event.
