Brussels, July 26, 2021 -- Effective immediately or as contracts allow, Solvay will increase the prices by 10% on all grades of Supersol® wire drawing lubricants, on a worldwide basis.

Since the beginning of 2021, the cost of raw materials and non-raw material input costs, including freight, energy, and labor, continue to increase well beyond earlier expectations. 

Solvay has been striving continuously to mitigate these skyrocketing costs with productivity and cost cutting programs. However, the sustained magnitude of cost increases makes this price increase absolutely essential to continue to bring value to our customers while supporting developments that enhance our customers’ competitiveness and ensure we continue to be a sustainable, safe, high quality, service-oriented partner for the long term.
