Misprint Monday: White Ink Futures
At the end of January 2017 there was a major fire in the Huntsman plant in Pori in Finland. Despite the dramatic photos of this clearly very large fire, luckily there were no reported injuries or deaths.
This plant produces a large portion of the titanium dioxide in the world used in white printing inks. So you might see white ink prices rise this year.
Huntsman reports a phased rebuild with full capacity re-established in about a year.
