U.S. Silica Announces Price Increases on Industrial and Specialty Products

20 April 2022

U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc., said today that part of its Industrial and Specialty Products business will increase prices for most of its non-contracted diatomaceous earth, perlite and cellulose products used primarily in food and beverage filtration, renewable diesel, catalysts, paints and coatings, plastics and industrial oil.

Price increases will range up to 25 percent, depending on the product and grade. The price increases are effective for shipments starting May 15, 2022.

This increase is driven by ongoing inflationary pressures around raw materials, packaging, labor, logistics and maintenance expenses.
