FMC Lithium Raises Prices

July 18, 2005
FMC Lithium is implementing a price increase of 15-20% for its complete range of lithium salts (specific increases depend on product and packaging). The salts include lithium carbonate (Li2CO3), lithium hydroxide (LiOH), lithium chloride (LiCl) and other specialty inorganics. These increases apply to all pricing worldwide and will take effect on August 1, 2005, or as contracts allow. Rising energy, raw material and freight costs are factors contributing to the price increases.
