Due to continued significant increases in costs, IGM Resins is announcing price increases on its Omnirad, Esacure and Omnipol photoinitiator portfolio.

Key drivers for these increases are the impact of the global shortage of key raw materials for the production of photoinitiators and the increase in energy and transportation costs over the last months, impacting IGM’s costs position. The increases will be effective as of November 1st and will vary per product per region.

IGM Resins says it continues to focus on providing security of supply to its customers around the world. Specifically, its site in Mortara, Italy, the only photoinitiator production site in Europe and the largest outside of China, is already almost China-independent at the level of both first- and second-tier raw materials and will be fully China-independent by January 2022. In addition, while IGM Resins’ new, state-of-the-art Anqing production site in China is not currently impacted by local regulatory controls, IGM Resins is working with its partners to undertake further strong risk and mitigation planning.

PPG Receives EPA Registration for COPPER ARMOR Paint Powered by Corning Guardiant Technology

PPG Copper Armour Paint

PPG announced that the company has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration for its PPG COPPER ARMOR antimicrobial paint containing Corning Guardiant technology, proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on the painted surface, including SARS-CoV-2, in two hours.

The Copper Armor product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination that are mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens. Following this registration, PPG will begin selling the product in late 2021 through U.S. PPG PAINTS stores, independent retailers and select home improvement stores.
