The increase does include a number of commodity chemicals, and is likely to affect the global market. A few chemicals that could be potentially impacted are:

  • Sodium Hydroxide
  • Titanium Dioxide
  • Acetic Acid
  • Phosphates

For the complete list of items affected, see Tariff List-09.17.18.

CORECHEM continues to monitor the effect of the tariffs on commodity chemicals, and we have already taken steps necessary to minimize the impact on our customers.
