The British Coatings Federation (BCF) has warned its members that Solvents and Thinners are one category where prices are going through the roof. Some examples in BCF’s monthly raw material prices survey shows the largest increases in solvent prices in January 2021 versus 12 months ago are acetone (123%) n-butyl acetate (91%), IPA (41%) and n-butanol (54%). A critical issue here is two force majeures at major chemical plants producing butyl acetate. 

As a result, demand is high & supply is currently adhoc. Whilst we are planning for all eventualities with increase in our inventory, customers may experience some delay &/or orders rationed.

We wish to inform customers on the deepening global crisis in raw material supply. The present circumstances in which manufacturers of base products such as epoxy resins, titanium dioxides, solvent, cardboard; are declaring 'force majeure' which has resulted in restrictions of supply & continued price increases.

Given the raw material shortages that are currently prevalent across all sectors, some products may have a much longer lead time than others, & this may prevent swift acknowledgements of your orders initially as we await price & lead time confirmation from our manufacturing units. 

With demand for paint & coatings seasonally high, we want to assure customers that we will do everything possible to keep delays to a minimum.

We thank you for your continued loyalty, patience, understanding & cooperation.
