AOC raises gelcoat prices

AOC LLC announced a 10 cent-a-pound increase on select white, off-white, beige, tan, gray and other pastel pigmented gelcoats and an increase of as much as 25 cents a pound on similar color ranges of liquid pigment dispersions.

The amount of the increase is dependent on the formulation components, the company said.

New pricing is effective for all shipments after Aug. 31.

“This price announcement is in direct response to rising costs for titanium dioxide and other key raw material related components,” the company said in a statement. "AOC expects titanium dioxide prices to continue expanding to historically high levels due to strong global demand and that global market supply conditions will limit titanium dioxide availability for the extended future.”
