  • Sun Chemical to Increase Prices on Energy Curable Inks

    Sun Chemical has announced they will increase prices of all ultraviolet (UV) & electron beam (EB) inks in Europe by 4-6%, effective July 1, 2018.

    Reasons for the increase include:
    • Governmental initiatives & regulations geared toward environmental protection have caused many suppliers of photoinitiators to either cease or reduce production for limited periods.
    • Photoinitiator supply has been impacted by major incidents, including a factory fire, low stocks, unplanned maintenance & production outages.
    • Increases in key oligomers & monomers have impacted pricing for all energy cure systems.
    According to Sun Chemical, they have worked hard to safeguard supplies & mitigate shortages, but the unprecedented high costs of raw materials have necessitated they be passed onto ink manufacturers.
